About the topic


The Digital Product Passport (DPP) is the new big challenge that will have to be faced by all actors from suppliers of raw materials and components, manufacturers and recyclers of products.


The purpose of the DPP is to provide information on the environmental sustainability of products. It should help consumers and businesses make informed choices when purchasing goods, facilitate repairs and recycling, and improve transparency about the life-cycle impact of products on the environment.


The DPP will apply to any physical good that is placed on the EU market, regardless of where it is produced. Over 30 product categories are covered by the requirement. These categories include but are not limited to batteries, textiles and apparel, furniture, electronics, building materials, toys, metals and aluminum, chemicals, and more.
