Event type

There is a need for more supply chain transparency to accelerate the circular transition.

The Commission’s proposal for an Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) includes obligations for a digital product passport (DPP). As a central digital and policy tool, the DPP is expected to revolutionise the way product-related data is collected and shared across supply chains. Batteries are the first product group for which the use of a DPP will be a legal requirement as of 2027, through the recently adopted Battery Regulation.

This in-person event aims to discuss the potential of the battery passport to enable more transparent and sustainable supply chains.

It will explore the following issues:

  • What challenges can be expected in terms of battery passport requirements?
  • How can we overcome data sharing obstacles across battery supply chains?
  • How can future delegated acts address existing issues?
