The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) provides a special information package through a dedicated web platform to companies and entrepreneurs wishing to start or switch to circular construction approaches.

RVO's Circualr Building web-page provides an overview of things that companies can take into account in their endeavours, including:

  • How to get started with circular building, how to create revenue, new business models based on leasing, for instance, instead of buying
  • Sustainable procurement and who can help with information and advice
  • National regulations that can stimulate sustainable building practices, such as Environmental Performance of Buildings Permits and Smart Regulation for Green Growth 
  • Networks addressing the circular economy in industries, regions, cities, etc.
  • Green deals and city deals; voluntary agreements between governments and business to implement sustainable projects
  • Financing opportunities, subsidies and tax incentives
  • Good practices and other information

The initiative supports and seeks to boost the Transition Agenda for Circular Economy in Construction.
