Multidisciplinary coalition transforms the Netherlands into a global circular hotspot

Download Download

The RACE program (Realisation of Acceleration towards a Circular Economy) is officially launched by a coalition of partners consisting of MVO Nederland, Circle Economy, De Groene Zaak, Het Groene Brein, Acceleratio, IMSA and the Dutch government. The RACE coalition will collaborate closely to position the Netherlands as a frontrunner in creating a circular economy.

The unique collaboration between government, NGOs and businesses enables multidisciplinary innovation, marrying technological progress with social and system innovation. The RACE program is part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment’s From Waste to Resource program.

The RACE program consists of the following activities:

  • Defining and stimulating circular design
  • Studying and stimulating high-quality reuse
  • Making an inventory of (perceived) barriers
  • Stimulating and accelerating new value chains
  • Creating a portfolio of circular project examples
  • Raising public awareness around the topic of circular economy
  • Involving young people in the transition towards a circular economy

TNO, one of the leading Dutch research organizations, described the opportunities for the Netherlands with a circular economy in their report for the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment published in 2013. Annual monetary savings of EUR 7.3 billion from reducing demand on natural resources, the creation of 54,000 jobs,and the significant reduction of environmental burdens are some of the national benefits of pursuing a circular economy. By making the production and use of materials circular, the Netherlands can meet its growing needs in a sustainable way.

The transition to a circular economy is a process that includes technical innovations and system change. Together with the partners from the RACE coalition Circle Economy will develop their projects into concrete programmes this fall.

“Ends” Framework
‘Ends’ frameworks help us envision the dot on the horizon and ensure the end goal we are working towards takes key concepts that we care about into account.

‘Means’ frameworks provide us with the tools to translate visions into concrete realities. Where ‘ends’ frameworks put a dot on the horizon, ‘means’ frameworks pave the way.
