Facts and figures
Matching regional and network priorities
The transition to a circular economy is one of the province’s priorities as well as becoming energy-neutral by 2050. South Holland is changing from a classic harbour area into a knowledge intensive area and has a strong innovation potential because of its high business activity. Successful investments have been made in an integral approach to accelerate the transition from a linear, fossil economy to a bio-economy, and ultimately to a resource efficient circular economy. Moreover, the province’s ambitions also concern the conservation of the energy supply, with the commitment to provide a substantial contribution to the production at national level of 14% renewable energy in 2020 and 16% in 2023.
The province’s political priorities align with the thematic interests and priorities of ECRN, which has determined the successful adhesion of the region to the network.
ECRN and all its member regions are looking forward to collaborating with the region and integrating it in the network’s activities!
