The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area as a frontrunner in a fundamentally different, circular textile sector: that is the ambition of a large network of companies, governments and knowledge institutions in this region. Inspiring circular aesthetics and substantial upscaling in recycling are the spearheads of the Green Deal Circular Textiles.
What is the Green Deal Circular Textiles?
Green Deal Circular Textiles consists of a consortium of companies, governments and academia participating in several sub-initiatives. The Amsterdam Economic Board has a monitoring role in this.
Check out the Green Deal Circular Textiles sub-initiatives.
These sub-initiatives have created the need for a more focussed regional approach. This has two spearheads: a substantial upscaling in recycling and the propagation of an inspiring circular aesthetic. The Amsterdam Economic Board has a driving role in these two spearheads.
1. Upscaling in high-quality recycling
The spearhead Upscaling in high-quality recycling is a way to work towards achieving 70% circular textiles by 2030. It stems from the regional vision: Together towards a circular textile sector in the MRA (pdf in Dutch).

2. Circular aesthetics
The Circular aesthetics spearhead provides a place to inspire and be inspired about a circular approach in fashion and textiles. Where makers, designers, producers, policy and consumers meet. A place that sets the agenda and showcases best practices. Here you will find and share knowledge, expertise and values that advocate a more open, fair, inclusive and transparent sector.
