Circularity Gap Report: Built Environment, the Netherlands

June 28, 2022
Circularity Gap Report, Built Environment

The Netherlands has put forward the ambitious goal of a fully circular economy by 2050. But resting at the centre of a perfect storm, the built environment in the Netherlands is dealing with challenging environmental and social circumstances such as the climate and nitrogen crisis, a shortage of affordable housing and the biggest labour shortage seen in years. To uncover the state of circularity and related employment effects—both showing opportunities and providing recommendations for the Dutch built environment—this report applies the Circularity Gap methodology to a sector for the first time. It assesses the circularity of the Dutch built environment and sketches a path forward, highlighting key recommendations for actors.
