News & Events


Holland Circular Hotspot (HCH) is the international gateway to the Dutch circular economy. Based on our knowledge of the international market and in collaboration with our international network, we create mutual business opportunities, organize international programs on circularity, act as a content partner on circular economy, and we showcase Dutch CE leaders abroad. HCH is a not-for-profit foundation and is active in collaboration between the business community, knowledge institutions and governments. HCH was founded in 2015 as one of the actions of the government-wide program ‘The Netherlands Circular!’ and works closely with ministries, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, Rijkswaterstaat, NLinBusiness, and the missions abroad. HCH has established a unique network of companies, but also a strategic network of international circular hubs. These public-private coalitions of the willing provide access to a local circular market. HCH is unique because of its knowledge of the CE landscape in the Netherlands, insights into market opportunities abroad and the effective way of connecting and supporting to realize mutual opportunities.

Role in the project:

Holland Circular Hotspot (HCH) is continuing the work previously developed by the Circular Biobased Delta (CBBD) representing the south-west of the Netherlands, one of the 6 pilot regions established for the project.
