OVAM, as a competent entity, in collaboration with all the actors involved, supports the transition towards sustainable materials management and a circular economy. The purpose of this support is to achieve and support concrete breakthroughs on the road towards a sustainable economy and society when it comes to materials in the Flemish region, and to set an example within the European Union. To this end, OVAM will set up a cooperation partnership with the Government of Flanders institutions involved, the business community, the knowledge world and civil society.
Within that partnership, agreements are made about:
|1°||the establishment of a public-private steering group to manage the transition in terms of content and strategy. The steering group is composed in a balanced way of representatives of organisations that play an important role in the transition to a circular economy, and who are committed to investing time and resources in it;|
|2°||the drawing up of internal regulations on the internal functioning of the steering group.|
The Government of Flanders can lay down further rules for the transition and the partnership referred to in the first paragraph.
