The Sustainable Development Goals in a VUCA World – Global Goals Yearbook 2022

iPoint contributes article on Digital Product Passports

The Global Goals Yearbook 2022 was released – a publication in support of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the global advancement of corporate sustainability. 2022 is the year when things seem to be looking up again with regard to the Covid-19 pandemic, but wars, inflation, and other crises prevail, weakening global awareness. That’s why the authors of Global Goals Yearbook 2022 call the future "VUCA" – which stands for volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous – and discuss the crisis of globalization, the growing importance of ESG as a risk criterion, and labor and human rights in supply chains.

In line with the idea of learning from role models, the Global Goals Yearbook 2022 offers good practice examples, positions, and opinions from companies and representatives from civil society. We are pleased that iPoint is once again among the best practices featured in the publication. The iPoint article “Digital Product Passports: Pioneers for the Sustainable Economy” explains why it is becoming increasingly important for climate protection as well as in the fight against exploitative working conditions to record a product’s sustainability data in a uniform and transparent format. The main goal of the Digital Product Passport is to capture environmental and social sustainability data in a standardized, comparable format and enable all actors in the value and supply chain to work together towards a circular economy.
