In December, CIRPASS was presented at COP28 in Dubai

Funded by the European Commission under the Digital Europe Programme, CIRPASS is a collaborative initiative to prepare the ground for the gradual piloting and deployment of a standards-based Digital Product Passport (DPP) aligned with the requirements of the Proposal for Ecodesign for Sustainable Product Regulations (ESPR), with an initial focus on the electronics, batteries, and textile sectors.


On 11 December 2023, the CIRPASS project was presented at a podium discussion at COP28 in Dubai. The discussion was hosted by Lisa Lang, Director of Policy & EU Affairs Orchestrator at EIT Climate KIC, the focus during the discussion was the textile sector. Andreas Schneider, CEO of Global Textile Scheme GmbH and a representative of CIRPASS, participated in the first of four podium discussions within COP28: Design, Digitalization, and Sustainable Development.


According to Andreas, the main results of Panel1 (in which he participated) were:


  1. The post-Covid market environment is more than challenging, so the adaptation of the necessary circular economy of the textile and fashion sector could be better.

  2. We should pay more attention to the huge volume of micro actors, who have the least resources but more flexibility - but they need structured and funded training support for the upcoming transition processes.

  3. It's a positive fact that ESPR is setting the necessary guidelines for a transition to more sustainability and material cycles, which otherwise would not happen by itself.

  4. Politics and industry should cooperate more and learn more from each other.

  5. CIRPASS as an enablement project is a positive best practice for what such a joint venture could look like and how fruitful it can be.
