In May 2023, the United Nations Centre for Trade Facilitation and Electronic Business launched the project titled “Transparency at scale – digital solutions for trust, resilience and sustainability: verifiable credentials in supply chains”. Among the deliverables of this project is Recommendation No. 49, which will offer policy guidance on the implementation of traceability and transparency at scale through digital instruments, such as the United Nations Transparency Protocol for Digital Product Passports.  

Aimed to address increasing demand for policy action that ensures the integrity of both product sustainability claims and corporate sustainability disclosures, draft Recommendation No. 49: Transparency at Scale, which completed a 60-day public review period on 19 June 2024, is tabled to the thirtieth Plenary of UN/CEFACT for information and discussion.  

Document ECE/TRADE/C/CEFACT/2024/6 is submitted to the thirtieth session of the UN/CEFACT Plenary for information.
