The propagation of relevant information from the manufacturers through the supply chain to the use phase and finally to the recyclers and re-users of materials and products is a key challenge to build a more circular and sustainable society and to reach a toxic free environment. LIST approaches this challenge from a scientific, software solutions and regulatory/policy perspective via a range of projects, e.g. around environmental footprint, compliance, safety, and data exchange, quantification and assessment tools. Therefore, we are glad to be part of the Circularity Dataset Initiative as it brings together a wide range of stakeholders and aims to facilitate the exchange of data throughout the supply chain via standardization and the definition of data requirements. The Circularity Dataset standard will help to harmonize the data exchange throughout the products’ life cycle, ensure chemical traceability, provide a quantitative basis for environmental footprint calculations and thereby provide added-value for the actors along the value chain. We will consider it in our on-going and planned projects building a scientific, IT and regulatory framework to contribute to the transition towards a more circular society
