How Can we Make our Products Greener? - AND - Getting Ready for the EU Digital Product Passport

INTRODUCTION: Bryan Raven will open the session with a 10 minute overview of the recent PLASA and #WeMakeEvents survey on sustainability in the live events and entertainment industry.

PART 1: Whilst our industry is enormously supportive of environmental issues, even a cursory examination shows that the vast majority of new products we use still make little effort to improve their environmental impact. Roland Hemming asks: What can we do to fix this? (45mins)

15mins informal Q&A and handover

PART 2: Lisa Stafford offers a concise introduction to the EU Digital Product Passport, focusing on its significance, functionality, and practical steps for implementation ahead of the 2027 mandate affecting electronic and electrical products sold and distributed within and into the EU. Targeted at manufacturers and distributors in the entertainment electronics sector, the session highlights how this forthcoming regulation can serve not only for compliance but also as a strategic advantage. It will detail the passport’s role in enhancing sustainability and transparency in the supply chain, demonstrate how it integrates with existing systems, and provide a straightforward checklist to aid businesses in their preparation and implementation efforts. (30mins)

NOTE: This is a joint session. There will be a short Q&A break between presentations for audience members to leave / join the session.
