The authors of this chapter discuss the implications of the circular economy and the European Union proposed Digital Product Passport (DPP) on the value, manufacture, use, re-use and disposal of materials throughout the maritime transportation value chain. The authors assert that without a competitive global circular economy, the maritime sector will never be able to reach the global climate and environmental ambitions and targets. They explain the principles of a circular economy and provide several examples of how the EU DPP might work and how it will impact the maritime transportation chain.
