Finland, Canada and the Netherlands join forces to advance the circular economy as key to a sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Netherlands will organise a multi-stakeholder high-level meeting as part of the World Circular Economy Forum to address the links between the circular economy and climate.
“The Netherlands is very much looking forward to hosting a high level WCEF meeting on the circular economy and climate change on 15 April 2021. There is no doubt that the transition to a circular economy is crucial in reaching our climate goals. We need to recognise the large and cost-effective contribution that the circular economy can make in building a more sustainable society, especially in the post-COVID-19 world,” says Minister for the Environment of the Netherlands Stientje van Veldhoven.
