Circular economy (CE) is a development priority of the EU and a central component of the European Green Deal, which aims to achieve climate neutral in the region by 2050.
One of the main building blocks of the European Green Deal is the EU’s Circular Economy Action Plan and the introduction of digital product passports (DPPs).
DPPs store key data to improve traceability of products and encourage eco-design and sustainability through standardizing information on a product’s reusability, repairability, upgradability etc.
