Schiphol Amsterdam airport’s circular public procurement

Action leader(s)

Schiphol Airport/Schiphol Group


Schiphol Airport boosts the principles of sustainability with the goal to generate zero waste by 2030. Supporting circular economy, it made a deal with Philips Lighting, which has been working on a lighting retrofit at the airport based on a lighting-as-a-service business model. This business model puts focus on relationships via services instead of equipment selling.
