As the world becomes increasingly conscious of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, the regulatory landscape is evolving at a rapid pace. Governments worldwide are introducing new regulations aimed at promoting sustainable development and circular business models. This regulatory push highlights the growing need for data transparency for value chain actors, policymakers, consumers, and stakeholders.

To meet these growing demands, stakeholders are increasingly turning to digital data exchange platforms that leverage standards and data models to gather, analyze and share structured data across the value chain. The standards and data models help ensure that the data is accurate, reliable, and interoperable, enabling seamless data exchange between different systems and supports compliance with regulatory reporting requirements.

Transparency is key to build trust and becoming a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
