By 2050, The Dutch economy will be run completely on reusable raw materials. Various government, business and non-government organisations have signed a deal to realise a one hundred percent circular economy.
Government funds have been set aside to improve waste separation, so that discarded products can be reused. As a result valuable raw materials will no longer be lost in landfill sites. At the same time, innovations will focus on improving the recycling capability of products.
This transition will boost global competitiveness, foster sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs, while reducing waste, costs and emissions of greenhouse gasses.
