In May 2016, at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, the inaugural ID2020 summit took place. Founding members of Identity2020 Systems Inc. include Microsoft, the Rockefeller Foundation, the vaccination alliance GAVI, the management consultancy Accenture, and Ideo design. Funding for the alliance comes from foundations, private companies, and individuals.  

A first solution, 2017 unveiled, was based on blockchain technology from Accenture and run on Microsoft's Azure cloud platform. The experts believed that this way of using data could be used in a single app, for example at borders to show identification through QR codes.  

In January 2019, the Alliance launched the ID2020 Certification Mark at the World Economic Forum in Davos.  

On February 9, 2021, ID2020 announced the launch of the Good Health Pass Collaborative along with more than 25 leading individual companies and organizations in the technology, health, and travel sectors "to create a digital health pass system that will help restore global travel and restart the global economy."  

"ID2020 is building a new global model for the design, funding, and implementation of digital ID solutions and technologies ... Changing the flow of funds is necessary to re-align incentives. That’s why Alliance partners are pooling funds to invest in programs that consider digital ID holistically, as a platform for diverse benefits, services, and use cases throughout an individual’s life."
