Dutch Circular Cities & Regions

A circular economy in cities can start small and deliver results ‘close to home’. Solutions can jump from neighbourhood to neighbourhood, each in their own context and with their own local hero. Use this slide package to explain how cities can become accelerators for a circular economy.

Circular economy & the social development goals (SDGs)

Working on the circular economy means working on the majority of SDGs, not as a cost item but as a business model. In the report ‘How circular economy practices help to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals‘ Holland Circular Hotspot and The Netherlands Enterprise Agency explore how circular economy practices can achieve the SDG’s.

Knowledge institutes

We aim to be a circular hotspot that enables CE knowledge to be shared without boundaries. Have a look at this Quick Scan of the knowledge landscape in the field of the circular economy in the Netherlands. The Quick Scan was developed by ‘Het Groene Brein’, a platform that helps businesses to implement new, sustainable business models, using the latest scientific knowledge on sustainability.

The tools currently available are scans (of cities, sectors, products), databases, indicators, calculators, guides, analysis, among other materials. These can have as focus countries, regions/cities, sectors, products, and business models.
