Mandatory EU Regulations

The European Union has been actively developing regulations that mandate the use of Digital Product Passports (DPPs) to promote sustainable and transparent business practices across its member states.

The Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation (ESPR) is a pivotal component of the European Green Deal. This regulation stipulates the implementation of DPPs, which will enhance product lifecycle transparency by providing detailed information about the sustainability aspects, including the environmental impact, durability, and reparability of products.

The ESPR is designed to integrate a broad spectrum of product groups under its umbrella, setting forth requirements that not only aim for energy efficiency and circularity but also enforce the incorporation of sustainable practices in the production phase. By 2030, the implementation of this framework is projected to yield significant energy savings, effectively reducing the EU’s energy dependence and promoting environmental sustainability.

Businesses operating within the EU or exporting to the EU must adopt DPPs. Not only to comply with these emerging regulations but to also leverage the advantages of enhanced market perception and consumer trust.

Sphereon’s expertise and tools can help businesses navigate this evolving regulatory environment, turning compliance into a strategic advantage.
