The GSES System is an overarching system that works with a Sustainable Metastandard as exemption metrix that includes more and more certificates that are related to sustainability. Upload your certifications here and receive your rating on organization or product level within 48 hours.



The GSES System is an overarching standard that works in reverse. This means that the GSES rewards participants for certifications they already achieved.

The GSES system uses 1st and 2nd line exemptions. First-line exemptions are certificates that have been audited and issued by an independent certification body that is supervised by an Accreditation Council in the country where it is established.

2nd line exemptions need to be checked by presenting extra data and audit reports due to the reason that they are not audited by independent certification institutions.

The GSE meta standard consists of 2 levels:

GSE-Meta Standard 1st-line where your existing certifications are validated and ranked according to the GSE-Meta Standard at the Organization level.

GSE-Meta Standard 2nd-line where your existing certifications with reporting(s) according to the GSE-Meta Standard are validated and ranked at the organizational level.
