The advisory report ‘Circular economy: from wish to practice’ was presented to the Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs and the Dutch Minister for the Environment on June 18, 2015. The Netherlands can benefit from making smarter use of raw materials. To achieve this, a government-wide circular agenda is needed. This states the Council for the Environment and Infrastructure (Rli) in its advice ‘Circular economy: from wish to practice’, which was presented today to the Minister of Economic Affairs and the Minister for the Environment. A government-wide approach can bring more coherence to the major efforts which are currently already underway in various places to make the economy circular.
