Amsterdam Circular strategy 2020-2025 Live (public version and City Doughnut)

Today the City of Amsterdam published the new Strategy Amsterdam Circular 2020-2025. In the next 5 years this strategy and the related implementation programme will guide us towards a circular capital in 2050. Not only do we want to be sustainable within our city walls and improve local employment. We also want to significantly reduce our footprint which our consumer behaviour causes in other places in the world. Like the depletion of natural recources and CO2-emissions in other countries where our consumer goods are being produced right now. But also to improve working conditions of people who are responsible for the production of our clothes and electronics in that same countries.

Furthermore, the City published a Monitor for the circular economy. A tool which will track and trace (raw) materials from the moment they come into our city till they will be discharged and (hopefully) reused.

With the world's first City Doughnut (developed by Kate Raworth) we will monitor our progress towards a circular city. We will challenge ourselves on ecological and social themes, both local and global.
