On 8 April 2020, the College of Mayor and Alderpersons approved the Amsterdam Circular 2020-2025 strategy. The strategy makes use of an adapted version of British economist Kate Raworth's "doughnut model". The model describes how societies and businesses can contribute to economic development while still respecting the limits of the planet and the community.

This Circular strategy covers a large number of measures for businesses, the City and its residents: from waste reduction to resource management to circular construction.
