The GSES System
The GSES System is an overarching sustainable metastandard that covers al facets of sustainable entrepreneurship. The GSES System consists of 4 pillars on organizational and supply chain level and 3 Pilars on product level. The GSES System provides an online platform were all organizations in the world can measure and target their sustainability achievements by the GSES Sustainable Metastandard and the GSES assessments.
How it works
The GSES consists of 3 Organization assessments:
- GSES Quickscan
- Sustainability Issue Scan (results in the SDG Index)
- GSES Origin (map the product location of suppliers)
- And 4 Expert assessments.
- CSR Pillar extended
- SRP Pillar extended
- CO2 Pillar extended
- CE Pillar extended
The Organization assessments are completed by the organization itself. The Expert assessments are the underlying standards of the 4 sustainability pillars on organizational and supply chain level. The Expert assessments are fulfilled by the auditor/ reviewer by validation of the Organization assessments.
As an organization you start with the GSES Quickscan. The GSES Quickscan measures on organizational level and requests to upload files on sustainability policy and achievements, certificates the organization already has, environmental policy, CoC, supplier policy etc. With the GSES Quickscan it is very easy to get insight in your sustainability performances and to target these!
