Circular inspiration: Amsterdam - learning by doing

In 2015 the City of Amsterdam commissioned an in-depth research into the potential of a circular economy. The project was the first large-scale research study in the world that uses the ‘city circle scan’ methodology. 


The scan identifies the areas in which the most significant, tangible progress in realising a circular economy can be achieved. Read about how Amsterdam got on and which value chains were deemed the most important.


Abdeluheb Choho, deputy-mayor of Amsterdam, said: “National governments won’t make today’s economy circular. Businesses and consumers are the real drivers. We, as local governments, can make it happen by facilitating and stimulating this transition. Amsterdam decided to prove in practice that a circular economy is profitable in all aspects, while developing further knowledge to be shared worldwide”.
