They thereby launched the program to position the Netherlands as circular hotspot during the Dutch presidency of the European Union in 2016.In the presence of Prince Carlos de Bourbon de Parme, founder of Netherlands Circular Hotspot, 25 leading organisations, including DSM, KPMG, Rabobank, the Association of Water and the City of Amsterdam signed for their ambassadorship. They want the Netherlands to be internationally recognised as the place where the most relevant knowledge and experience in the field of circular business is located. This knowledge is fully deployed here, applied by multinationals, SMEs and (local) governments and could be used around the world as best practice.Taking a first step towards putting big ideas into practice, the second signing of the day was the agreement between Delta Development Group (and its partners), Schiphol Group and the Municipality of Haarlemmermeer. They work together on the development of the circular subarea within Schiphol Trade Park: The Valley. Coert Zachariasse, owner of Delta Development Group, is among the top 25 eco-innovators named by Fortune.

Many inspiring circular things are already happening in the Netherlands that all could and should be proud of. Together with a strong coalition Circle Economy is now leading the way to put our country on the international map as a circular hotspot. Delta Development Group is an ideal partner on this trajectory, making the circular economy concept very tangible and proving Netherlands Circular Hotspot with a physical landing place.Amongst over 200 attendees Prince Carlos de Bourbon de Parme launched this ambitious program, which includes an incoming press- and trade mission, an exhibition of circular icon projects and -during the Dutch presidency of the EU- the presentation of a broadly supported circular vision to European officials.
