EU Digital Product Passport - learning from frontrunners
The European Commission's proposal to establish an EU Digital Product Passport (DPP) in the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation brought the DPP under the spotlight. The document highlighted the potential benefits of the DPPs in reaching the goals set in the European Green Deal and their potential to turbo charge circularity as the norm in Europe.
The ECESP Leadership Group on Sustainable products and design organised this #EUCircularTalks on 8 July from 9:00 to 10:30 CEST. The event is a timely opportunity to assess EU regulatory initiatives and thinking on digital product passports. What are the challenges and pathways ahead? Let us hear the answers directly from frontrunner stakeholders that have already conceptualised digital products passports and are operating them on the EU market and learn from their experience.
