Global Sustainable Enterprise System® partnered up with Altares Dun & Bradstreet and becomes world’s most influential sustainability rating platform
Corporates, SME’s and public organisations are ever more committed to work together towards more sustainability. In over twelve countries many already embarked on the Global Sustainable Enterprise System® as overarching, scalable and leading online sustainability rating platform based on the underlying international Global Sustainable Enterprise Standard.
Altares Dun & Bradstreet has established and rolled-out a portfolio of international financial and economic standards on a global scale since a very long time, touching every aspect of business life around the world, helping in reaching better informed decisions. Allowing clients of the Dun & Bradstreet Global Network to access the Global Sustainable Enterprise System will be instrumental for including sustainability in their decisions.
Global Sustainable Enterprise System® is the global holistic standard for social, circular and environmental friendly organizations, supply chains and products/projects. The GSE system is a comprehensive, Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS") platform that offers various services, including: product lifecycle management, supply chain management, supply chain risk monitoring, data validation and certification of organizations, processes & products, all focused on the five pillars of sustainability: – Corporate Social Responsibility – Sustainable Procurement – Carbon Emission Reduction – Circular Economy – Health & Safety
The GSE System standards are open source and managed by a wide international range of experts and stakeholders from diverse industries led by the National Sustainability Institute of the Netherlands. The sustainability ratings are independently verified and certified by major global certification bodies.
“When we started the GSE platform, there were already many certificates, but they all focused on sub-areas. Our goal was to develop the first global and generic standard that is internationally suitable for the public and private sectors, to help the transformation to a more sustainable world forward. On one hand, we make demonstrable sustainability claims from companies and product compliant and, on the other hand, make complex international supply chains transparent with regards to sustainability. Our partnership with Altares D&B unleashes a considerable mutual value to put sustainability on the agenda of all business decisions. GSE System has partners with global partners like EIN Enterprise in the UAE for its global expansion” Kelly Ruigrok – Managing Director of the Global Sustainable Enterprise System.
“In recent years we have seen the need among our customers to chart the sustainability of their business relationships. In addition to the company information that we can already offer from Altares Dun & Bradstreet, this is a very welcome addition to the portfolio. This collaboration with Global Sustainable Enterprise System® is one in which we can make the world more sustainable, driven by data.” Mike van Kessel – Altares Dun & Bradstreet.
