A leading news portal. joins CIRPASS to lay the ground for the deployment of European Digital Passport Products

0 25 joins the CIRPASS consortium, bringing together a core network of
leading organisations in building the European vision for a unified Digital Product
Passport (DPP) approach across multiple value chains. Funded by the European
Commission under the Digital Europe Programme, CIRPASS aims to prepare the
ground for the gradual piloting and deployment of the DPPs from 2023 onwards,
with an initial focus on the electronics, batteries and textile sectors.

On 5 October, the new CIRPASS (Collaborative Initiative for a Standards-based Digital Product
Passport for Stakeholder-Specific Sharing of Product Data for a Circular Economy) project
officially kicked off with a hybrid meeting taking place in Brussels. With 30 partners representing
thousands of industrial, digital, international, standards and regulatory organisations and NGOs
across Europe, the 18-month project will respond to the European Commission’s call on creating a
clear concept of the DPP, defining a cross-sectoral product data model with demonstrated
benefits for the circular economy as well as developing roadmaps for its deployment.

DPPs are crucial for enabling the EU’s transition to a circular economy

The circular economy will replace wasteful linear economies by 2029, according to the 2019
Garner study. To get there requires turning around the linear supply chain system to create a
whole circular ecosystem. Through the DPP, CIRPASS helps in laying the foundation for such an
ecosystem across value chains in three sectors batteries, electronics and textiles, based on
common rules, principles, taxonomy and standards. In specific, the project aims to deliver at least
three DPP prototypes for the three sectors as well as reaching agreements on key data for
circularity and sustainability. The consortium partners will also work together to provide
recommendations for a data exchange protocol and system architecture, making sure that the
product information contained in the DPP will be standardised and machine-readable.
By enabling a successful rollout of the DPPs in critical sectors, CIRPASS contributes to giving the
European industry the possibility to implement the circular business model on a large scale and in
a resilient way.

Building a balanced and open community dedicated to the roll-out of the DPPs and beyond

To ensure a cross-sectoral approach, CIRPASS unites leading European Research and Technology
organisations, supported by three standardisation organisations, an experienced pool of circular
economy and sustainability consultancies, several large European industrial associations, digital
technologies and web experts as well as selected digital solution providers. Thanks to this
community of expertise and knowledge sharing, the project will build consensus around the DPP
concept and contribute to the development of common principles, prototypes and roadmaps for
the deployment of DPPs across value chains, sectors and market participants.
Besides the collaboration of project partners, stakeholder engagement is a crucial part of
CIRPASS’s action plan. An ecosystem for stakeholder engagement will be set up. Various activities
to activate companies and organisations from across Europe will be announced throughout the
project, including joining Expert and Stakeholder groups, participating in CIRPASS’s workshops
and public events, responding to consultations and much more.

Joining the CIRPASS consortium, will contribute to develop the DPP prototype for
textiles. Beyond the sector specific developments, will be also active in creating
information and system architecture of the cross-sectoral DPP system. To achieve the ambitious
project goals, will bring in their profound expertise from many years of operating
the circularity.IDR and circularity.IDR Open Data Standard. Insights and learnings from its
implementation and connection into the reverse supply chain for many different leading
organisations across the value chain will help contribute to a feasible and thought-through
prototype of the DPP.

About is a sustainable change agency creating product and system innovation for a
circular economy in fashion and textiles. The system is a digital platform for
circular design and closed loop recycling. With a sleek and smart tracking solution, the platform
enables a transparent flow of information between material suppliers, brands, customers and
recyclers to collaboratively realize a circular economy for fashion and textiles. The platform
consists of the following tools and services: Circular Material Library, Circular Design Guidelines,
Circular Product Check, circularity.ID, Customer Interface and Sorting Software.
In addition, offers consultancy, training and workshops that encourage and enable
fashion brands to incorporate circularity into the core of their business.
