The EU’s Digital Product Passport

Unlocking a circular future

In March 2022, as part of the Green Deal and the new Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP), the European Commission (EC) presented a proposal for a new Ecodesign framework known as the Ecodesign for Sustainable Product Regulation (ESPR).

The ESPR is set to revolutionise supply chains, compelling them to adopt a new mode of operation that greatly facilitates the shift towards a more sustainable and circular economy. Central to this transformation is the introduction of the Digital Product Passport (DPP) within the ESPR framework. Often hailed as the “silver bullet” for realising a circular economy, the DPP represents significant potential for industrial transformation.

This eBook provides detailed information about the EU's Digital Product Passport, including:

  • Achieving sustainability with data
