Circular Friesland Strategy

Action leader(s)

Circular Friesland Association

Summary

The Circular Friesland Association (Vereniging Circulair Friesland) was initiated by coorporations within Friesland, later drawing in the provincial municipalities as partners. There was an acceptance that future business models would have to change due to the changing state of natural resources. In Friesland the chains are short and most parties are already familiar with eachother, allowing the concept of circular economy to be absorbed in the transition that was already taking place within the area.
