The Dutch government made an additional amount of 80 million euros available for promoting a circular economy in 2019 and 2020. The money is intended for projects that "fit in with the transition to an economy without waste", and thereby contribute to reducing CO2 emissions, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management announced.

The Netherlands' goal is to have a 50 percent circular economy by 2030, and have its economy be 100 percent waste-free by 2050.

Amsterdam is increasingly working towards a zero-waste lifestyle, or so-called circular economy. The city is presenting 23 projects aimed towards this goal. "Amsterdam will be the first city in the world to prove that a circular economy is possible and profitable", the city said in a press statement on Wednesday.
