Special Envoys

Special envoys are recognised circular economy experts that can represent the Foundation Holland Circular Hotspot worldwide. They come from different sectors and represent Dutch business and entrepreneurs, international public organisations, government bodies or knowledge and research institutes. They all have a sound knowledge of the Dutch circular economy eco-system and collectively bring in a broad international experience in fostering sustainability and developing innovative business models. Just like us, they have the inner motivation to make the world more sustainable, green and circular. They help us to facilitate a transition to a circular economy at the international level.
