The Dutch economy can adopt the following interventions within four key sectors to deliver impactful circular change: Advanced construction practices Limit, or even stop the demolition of buildings and ensure that building methods revolve around the renovation and reuse of materials. Circular agriculture and food system Implement agricultural practices that prioritise waste reuse and local production and trade, such as stopping the import of animal feed and export of animal products. Shifting from fossil fuels to renewable sources Increase the share of renewable energy used to power the country and axe fossil fuel use. Repair, remanufacturing and high-value recycling Double the current material use of the repair sector, as well as the amount of high-value recycling and the share of recycled materials in imports.
