Digital Product Passport

What is the Digital Product Passport and what does it mean for your business?

In short, the Digital Product Passport will be a tool to provide detailed information about a product throughout its lifecycle. This information will include data on the product’s composition, origin, environmental impact, and other relevant details. All of which will be available to anyone who interact with the product through a scannable tag (e.g. QR code or similar)

The DPP will make it easier to publish important product information, providing more transparency and traceability in the supply chain and empower consumers to easily compare products and make more informed decisions regarding purchasing, repairing, and recycling products, and make it easier for authorities to verify compliance with legal obligations.

The new level of transparency will motivate brands and manufacturers doing business within the European Union to source, manufacture and distribute more sustainable products to remain competitive.

The Digital Product Passport, or DPP for short, is introduced by the European Union (EU) as a new sustainability regulation with the objective to accelerate the transition to a circular economy, boosting material and energy efficiency.

Digital Product Passport

It's all about data!

The Digital Product Passport will set new standards as to how brands and manufacturers maintain the quality and consistency of their product data. DPP data will most likely include:

Product data

Information like name, make, model, batch number, manufacturing date, and warranty details.

Materials data

Information related to origins of raw materials and components.

Supplier data

Information on the suppliers involved in sourcing.

Ownership data

Details on current and past owners.

Repair data

Information about the overall repairability of the product, plus specific repair events and reasons.

Environmental impact data

Information regarding the carbon footprint of the manufacturing and distribution processes, as well as environmental impact throughout its lifetime.


Potential challenges and opportunities

It will rest upon the brands and manufacturers to collect, provide, and share the required data and there is no doubt that the comprehensive data requirements in the DPP will pose challenges for many actors in the supply chain.

It will first and foremost require companies to have a much deeper understanding of the overall impact of their products. Secondly, it will require companies to  implement new strategies, processes, and systems to handle the data requirements, which may require significant investments.

However, the Digital Product Passport will also provide an all-new platform with new opportunities for businesses to position their brand as a serious and responsible partner with a sustainable business model - increasing consumer trust, brand image and competitiveness.
