Sustainability is one of Amsterdam’s top priorities; so, the city government has therefore set a number of clear goals, such as reducing waste and transitioning to a circular economy. The Sustainability Agenda describes a number of goals designed to speed up the move towards a sustainable city:
• By 2020, Amsterdam will generate 20% more renewable energy and use 20% less energy per resident than in 2013.
• Improve air quality by putting as many zero-emissions vehicles on the road as possible.
• Establish a circular economy with new forms of production, distribution and consumption.
• Ensure that 65% of household waste is collected separately by 2020.
