The why, what and how of DPP

It's time for fashion to see data as a friend, not foe, but despite the willingness shown thus far, the operational components and requirements of DPP are poorly understood.

Featured in this book is the 'Why' and 'What' of DPP, and for the first time, presents fashion brands and retailers with a proposal and guidelines for the 'How'. 

As the 'responsible economic operators' for complying with DPP, brands and retailers can, and should, begin preparing for DPP now, and this book is their essential guide.



The 'Why'

A look into the DPP: its purpose, connection to EU regulations, impact on textiles, and its role in addressing industry issues.


The 'What'

Clarifying the requirements, compliance scope, present and future data needs, and lingering uncertainties surrounding DPPs.


The 'When'

A look at implementation stages, anticipated timeline for finalized details, and recommended starting point for preparation.


The 'How'

Practical steps, data collection methods and sources, system integration approaches, and how to apply DPP to current products.

Legislation and Regulation

The Importance and Role of DPPs

DPPs are one facet of many regulations intended to help deliver the EU Green Deal’s aim of ‘green growth’ and net zero emissions, and will help unlock the circular economy potential of textile products.

In "Unlocking DPP: The Why, What and How of Digital Product Passports", we outline what you need to know about the DPP's relationship with the EU Green Deal, CEAP, the EU Textile Strategy and more. 

Having understood the regulatory foundations for the digital product passports, we then unpack, in detail, what DPP is (and isn’t), how it will work, and what brands and retailers need to know, and do, next.
