How can we advance up the ladder toward a circular economy in the Netherlands?
This is the core theme of the Circular Economy National Conference taking place today in the Hague, where Circle Economy is taking to the stage alongside its partner The Goldschmeding Foundation.
As hosts of an active and engaging debate session at the event, Circle Economy will share its circular economy knowledge in a bid to inspire action. The Conference is made up of workshops, masterclasses and debates that revolve around three phases: Design, Usage and Disposal. Key questions to be addressed include; how do we ensure that we can better repair products, how can we encourage reuse over new purchases and how can we keep value in the chain for longer?
Circle Economy has recently been delving into the circularity of the Dutch nation in preparation for its brand new, yet-to-be-launched Circularity Gap Report, which focuses on the Netherlands. The new report will acknowledge that one key step to take in the practical and scalable implementation of the circular economy is measurement; how circular is the Netherlands? It will identify the key levers to transition to circularity on a national scale. But other levels are also crucial to consider, such as the human capital on the ground needed to fuel the transition. What kind of jobs and skills are necessary to turn concepts into reality on a large scale?
More information on the launch of the Circularity Gap Report the Netherlands will follow soon.
