The Netherlands is a frontrunner in the field of circular building and circular city planning. The Dutch government has the objective of making the entire national economy run 100% on reusable materials by 2050. Many Dutch companies are working on the circular transition and offer innovative solutions  to make this objective a reality.

The focus of the Dutch delegation at SCNY is to show these solutions and how the companies help cities facing important challenges, now and in the future.
