Abstract

This white paper was written to gather, open and share the overflowing initiatives and concepts concerning twin transition and digital product passport (DPP) raised by European Commission. The authors hope this paper will help manufacturing industry to proceed with their sustainability goals and to develop circular economy through new R cycles. Further, the authors believe that the DPP is a concept worthwhile to study and further pilot in industrial cases.
In future the DPP will be used by the European authorities monitoring product regulations in Eu-rope. The DPP can help consumers to make better (more sustainable) purchase decisions based on the available product information. The DPP shall help and guide the repair, remanufacturing and recycling activities of a product. Further, all product value chain actors can optimise their own operations based on the data shared via the DPP.
