Circular economy what we want to know and can measure

Framework and baseline assessment for monitoring the progress of the circular economy in the Netherlands.
The Dutch Government has outlined its plans for the transition to a circular economy in the government-wide circular economy policy programme, entitled ‘A circular economy in the Netherlands by 2050’. A monitoring system is required to determine whether this transition is progressing as planned, a proposal for which is made in this report. This monitoring system will document ‘what we want to know, and what we can already measure’. The latter being the baseline assessment.
