Guide for a materials passport
This document specifies the conditions for a comprehensive materials passport. The guideline aims to provide clarity, transparency, and encouragement for supplying ‘minimally required circular information.’ The goal is to gain insights into the circularity of a product/service based on circular data, facilitating the transition to a circular economy. The guideline for its content consists of minimally required circular data, categorized into three sections: Material Consumption, Environmental Impact, and Value Retention. These data are essential for determining the circularity of a product, which is also beneficial for the producer.
In addition to outlining the minimally required circular data, this document includes a list of other prerequisites that a materials passport must meet.
