Executive Summary

This report shines a light on an innovative product stewardship solution that helps suppliers take control of their product disclosures. Toxnot’s approach is based on digital product passports (DPP) to facilitate more efficient product data exchange within value chains, such as for building products, manufacturing and electronics. The solution provides a combination of control and flexibility, to  protect intellectual property (IP), while lowering the costs of disclosure to customers. DPPs can support firms purchasing products and components to achieve multiple goals around product compliance, sustainability and circularity.
