Friesland is striving to become the most circular region in Europe by 2025. In a circular economy, resources are reused and recycled. Energy comes from renewable sources. This approach minimises waste and emissions by closing the loop of product lifecycles.
The Circulair Friesland association brings together business, government, education, social enterprises and other relevant parties. This type of cooperation and collaboration across organisations and sectors is essential in a circular economy. As loops are closed, a wide range of sectors can use each other’s resources, knowledge and skills. Circulair Friesland proves that the circular economy is not just a concept, but a tangible and sustainable economy that allows companies to be profitable, create jobs and work together towards a sustainable future.
Key themes include:
Whether it’s by building energy neutral homes, growing crops on saline soil or manufacturing products from recycled plastics – Friesland is leading the way towards a circular economy by developing, stimulating and forwarding circular innovations. A successful example of this is the National Test Centre for Circular Plastics, which is coming to Friesland in 2019.
