From 2023 onwards, the City of Amsterdam aims to focus on circular and social criteria when commission the development of buildings and public spaces. Due to the major renovation and construction challenges that Amsterdam faces, we have to get a head start in circular construction as soon as possible. The Amsterdam Circular 2020-2025 Strategy details exactly how the city can realise a circular economy. The main objectives of this strategy are:
- by 2030, we will have reduced our use of new raw materials by 50%
- by 2050, our city will be 100% circular
And as a municipality, we are aiming to adhere to the following interim objectives:
- by 2022, 10% of the City’s procurement will be circular
- by 2023, all of the City’s calls for tender within the built-up environment will be circular
To get to that point, we are going to have to work hard over the coming years and gain new experiences in the fields of sustainable and circular construction.
To meet our targets, we have to embrace new innovations that will help us accelerate towards a circular economy.
Come up with an innovative solution to stimulate circular construction. This can be in either products and/or services that can be used in circular construction and renovation.
- the solution offered by the Startup must meet the following minimal criteria
- the solution offered must display knowledge in circular construction principles
