The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in collaboration with UN Environment Programme (UN Environment), and ETSI are organizing a workshop on “Global Digital ICT Product Passport to achieve a Circular Economy” on 1 June 2022 from 9h30 to 12h30 CEST. The workshop is a side event of the European Union (EU) Green Week 2022. The Workshop is fully virtual. REGISTER NOW!
Circular economy (CE) is a development priority of the EU and a central component of the European Green Deal, which aims to achieve climate neutrality 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, reparability, upgradability etc. ITU within ITU-T SG5 “EMF, environment, climate action, sustainable digitalization and circular economy” together with ETSI Technical Committee on Environmental Engineering are working on an international standard on “Requirements for a global digital sustainable product passport to achieve a circular economy”.
The objective of this Workshop is to examine the overarching concept of DPP and the requirements of DPP that are geared towards circularity.
The Workshop will bring together manufacturers, operators, policymakers, and other relevant stakeholders, and provide the ideal opportunity to discuss the latest development of DPPs, including the information and attributes that they should contain, and the role of international standards in facilitating its integration.
Detailed information about the event including the programme and registration is available HERE. The Workshop is fully virtual. REGISTER NOW!
Participation is free of charge. The event is open to all upon registration.
