The digitalization of industrial processes, along with the large incorporation of IoT infrastructures through production systems, has a dramatic effect on the value chains of manufacturing and the business models that are built on top. Starting with the concept of dematerializing production capital and supporting servitization, this paper describes the architecture behind a Manufacturing as a Service (MaaS) network, establishing an ecosystem that functions as a virtual marketplace taking untapped production capacity, as well as other virtual and physical assets, closer to the demand for production, in order to obtain their optimum production ability. The portal provides a clear link between the manufacturing services suppliers, the technology they incorporate, and the consumers requesting the products / resources. As a critical element in the service / product selection process is the assessment of the sustainability output of goods and businesses, the platform supports the automated acquisition of manufacturing data, their production through an LCA-based engine and aggregation into indicators. These metrics are used to identify suppliers into the sustainability perspective and/or provide means of communication of manufacturing-generated impacts.It incorporates the INTERNATIONAL DATA SPACES (IDS) connector as a data rich platform to link different entities through safe data exchange and trusted data sharing, thereby promoting data sovereignty. Integrating the IDS reference model forms the basis for data privacy and protection that provides trust between participants in the network and guarantees
