Clipper Interall is partnering with GSES, the company behind the first universal andglobal sustainability standard.
Rotterdam – Clipper Interall is investing in clarity about sustainability. To that end the importer and supplier of promotional gifts and products will work with GSES, the Global Sustainable Enterprise System. GSES offers a universal and sustainability standard, encompassing on hundreds of sustainability labels and standards for manufacturers, suppliers and (end) users.
“Clipper Interall is committed to offering promotional products with a minimal negative environmental impact. Those products are produced according to strict ethical standards and meet the highest European safety standards,” says Ruben van ‘t Loo, Director at Clipper Interall. “The partnership with GSES allows us to have our collection independently assessed on the sustainability criteria that are important to us.”
GSES is proud of the new partnership, explains CEO and founder Kelly Ruigrok: “It is the first major importer and supplier of promotional products to select our sustainability standard. We recently welcomed major retailers such as Wibra and Xenos, so this is a great addition in the promotional products market. Clipper Interall plays into the trend that sustainable produced promotional products are increasingly important to its (end)customers, so I am proud that we can support this.”
Thanks to the cooperation between Clipper Interall and GSES, (business) customers will be able to see at a glance how sustainable the promotional product is. Clipper Interall is the first major importer and supplier of promotional products to make this information available based on GSES’ universal sustainability standard.
GSES is an independent platform that, not only, translates more than 500 existing certificates and labels into a universal standard but also allows organizations to and products without certificates to be measured on sustainability. To ensure the integrity of the data used (‘anti greenwashing’) GSES works with a network of officially qualified Certification Institutions that audit the data supplied by companies to support their organizations’ or products’ sustainability claims.
