A circular economy in the Netherlands by 2050 (summary)

Currently, we still use our raw materials and fossil fuels too often as if they are inexhaustible. We make products as cheap as possible and too frequently throw them away after use. In a circular economy, we will deal with our resources in a much smarter way. We will use and consume as little as possible, and we will maximise the reuse of raw materials. We will develop products that are more durable and find new, smart ways to produce them. And we will use them more intelligently by sharing them and passing them on. By doing that, we will build a circular economy together. By 2050, this circular economy must be a reality in the Netherlands.
