Towards the Digital Product Passport: What to Know and How to Prepare

With the agreement reached between the Council and the European Parliament on the Ecodesign for Sustainable Products Regulation, sustainable products will become the norm. The new measures, aimed at enhancing the competitiveness of the companies producing them, will also encourage the dissemination of information on the sustainability content of products. The primary tool is the Digital Passport, which will assist companies and consumers in making more responsible procurement and purchasing choices, and authorities in more efficiently enforcing legal requirements.
In this webinar, developed in collaboration with The ID Factory, we will address the need for concrete information on a groundbreaking development that will radically change operational dynamics. It presupposes equipping oneself with structured systems for collecting and managing impact data and supply chain traceability.

Sustainability Reporting: New Reporting Obligations and the Benefits of Credible Communication

Sustainability Reporting is the process pursued by companies to showcase their impacts in the economic, social, and environmental spheres to stakeholders. The Sustainability Report is the outcome of this process, serving as a credible, transparent, and reliable communication tool that provides information and data to validate the company’s journey.
Starting this year, the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive significantly broadens the spectrum of companies legally required to disclose non-financial reporting, substantially lowering the size thresholds. This is why it’s crucial to be well-prepared, turning the new obligations into an opportunity for enhanced reputational growth.

Organizational Environmental Footprint: Tools for Measuring Your Company’s Impacts

The decision to embark on a sustainable transformation journey for one’s business model cannot ignore the calculation of the organization’s environmental performance. The training addresses this crucial topic for fashion companies in two independent yet complementary modules.

  • The first module aims to definitively clarify the differences between product environmental impact assessment and process environmental impact assessment, providing an overview of the main existing measurement tools.
  • The second module, on the other hand, takes a more operational approach, proposing concrete case studies for calculating water footprint and carbon footprint.

Participation in one module does not presuppose participation in the other: you can enroll in both or choose just one.
