News: Royal Schiphol Group is co-founder of circular economy specialists C-creators

The C-creators Foundation was officially launched on Tuesday 11 September 2018. C-creators is a joint initiative of the City of Amsterdam, the Municipality of Haarlemmermeer, Rabobank Schiphol and Royal Schiphol Group. With the founding of C-creators we want to speed up and scale up the transition to a circular economy within the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area.

The economy is ready for an 'upgrade' in which the circular economy becomes the new normal. Royal Schiphol Group believes that this goal can be achieved through cooperation and knowledge sharing with the environment.

The C-creators foundation focuses on three pillars:

  • Establishing and running a quality assurance, exchange and liaison counter
  • Creating business development and multi-year innovation programmes
  • Providing access to patient capital for CE initiatives

In cooperation with Cirkelstad, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and the European Investment Bank, they developed the Construction Programme with its strong focus on ‘moving from talk to action’. Recurring themes in this programme include circular tendering processes, funding and chain design. The programme partners are local governments, private parties, large and small construction companies and knowledge institutions. The goal is to speed up the standardisation of circular construction.

C-creators is also organising a variety of masterclasses and meetings. Some are for partners only, but some are open to various other interested parties.

You can find more information about this wonderful initiative on the C-creators website.
