There are several possible layers of information that can be contained in the Digital Product Passport. First of all, the Digital Product Passport can store general information about the product such as ID, batch number, product’s weight, date of production, manufacturing facility location, etc. Secondly, the Digital Product Passport can contain information about materials that have been used in production, including the country of origin of each raw material. This could be applied to raw materials, chemicals, and substances that could be recovered, recycled or reused. This information layer can also include the details proving the overall sustainability of the manufacturing process, compliance with ethical norms and ESG standards. Thirdly, the Digital Product Passport can contain information about the environmental impact and carbon footprint of the product. This is the data about CO2 and other emissions that emerged during each stage of production, water and energy consumption, and such.
Besides that, DPPs can include information about recyclability, repairability, warranties and user instructions.
