Sigma Technology and Lingon Certificates are collaborating for the Digital Product Pass initiative

As part of the EU's green deal, manufacturers will soon be required by law to provide unique Digital Product Passports (DPP) for every product sold on the European market. The aim is to lower the carbon footprint and bridge the circular economy gap by improving transparency and giving the buyer more information to make sustainable choices.

While DPP's scope will expand to many products, the introduction will be gradual. Building products and batteries are the first manufacturing areas to be targeted by the regulations for the Digital Product Passport. The EU plans to publish rules specifically targeting textiles and consumer electronics. In the coming years, furniture, electronic products and chemicals will be prioritized. Over time, the goal is that the initiative will cover up to 30 different manufacturing areas.

Sigma Technology Solutions Group works closely with the manufacturing industry to enable compliance with new regulations, integrate new technologies, and maximize business results.
