Frequently Asked Questions

Can GSES be used as a procurement tool?

Yes, the GSES system can be used as a procurement tool. The supplier functionality on the online GSES platform offers participants the opportunity to invite and rank their suppliers on standardized and internationally accepted sustainability themes such as CSR, Sustainable Procurement, CO2 Reduction, Circular Economy, Health & Safety and Chain transparency and collaboration.

After the suppliers publish their scores of the themes of your choice in the form of a validated assessment, a ranking of suppliers appears on your supplier dashboard.

How do we change the rules: a Coalition of the Willing?

How does NDI wants to change the rules of existing economies that are not sustainable enough?

Change can be only achieved through collaboration and joining forces, both locally, nationally and internationally. One willing organization (unless very large) does not have the ability to change the rules on its own. The NDI has a multi-stakeholder approach and organizes multi-stakeholder consultations.
The NDI is active in creating a Coalition of the Willing.

The strength of the GSES system is that it stimulates and influences stakeholders inside and outside the value chain. Furthermore, change will come by involving consumers, who can scan QR codes to view the sustainability performance of organizations and products on the GSES ScoreCard.
