The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a blueprint for achieving a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030. The SDGs are a call to action by all countries – rich, poor and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the environment.
In addition, the notion of a Circular Economy (CE) as an alternative economic framework has been gaining significant momentum worldwide. This growing CE interest is reflected by the emergence of numerous actors across the globe who form a framework for organising and pursuing sustainability initiatives.
The Holland Circular Hotspot and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency have come together to share insights, networks and resources to help you kickstart circular developments that will boost the SDGs in your region.
The Circular Economy & SDGs brochure identifies the extent to which circular economy practices are relevant for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Circular economy and SDGs
Circular economy and SDGsThe purpose of this brochure is to inspire a wide international audience to implement a circular economy using the Sustainable Development Goals as a starting point.
From Linear to Circular in the Textile and Apparel IndustriesLess waste, less pollution and a longer life span for our clothing: in a circular economy we can make this happen. The Netherlands’ circular textile market has a lot of potential, and to scale up we must seek international collaboration.
Circular ManufacturingAt Holland Circular Hotspot we believe that creating a circular economy calls for a profound transformation in the way we work and produce, the way we design, teach, invest and buy. For this reason, we strive to connect the global circular community, by inspiring cross-sectoral collaborations, stimulating the exchange of knowledge and innovations, boosting circular entrepreneurship.
