Cycling is clean and sustainable, and so the cycling infrastructure should be! Many national and international goals aim to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and to carefully use our scare resources and high-quality reuse them. There are already many technological solutions available which contribute to a circular economy. The Circular Building Foundation (Dutch: Stichting Circulair Bouwen) knows and promotes these products and services (circular, bio-based, low-energy or energy generating / road construction, lighting, maintenance etc.) which come from many different supplyers.
They provide both technical knowledge, products and services, and all the tools needed to guide the process toward circular infrastructure (finance, collaboration, new business models, promotion, cooperation with education and governments, etc.). Very important in this respect is their Multi-criteria Analysis Tool by Optimal Planet, which is used for circular contracting, benchmarking, transparency and accountability.
