A procurement dashboard that helps you manage your supply chain

Using the procurement dashboard feature, you can compare organizations and suppliers based on their sustainability performance. In this way, you can easily practice sustainable & responsible purchasing. There are no longer uncertainties regarding the impact of your purchasing on the environment or social responsibility.

A virtual safe to store your data securely

You can easily store your sustainability performance results, sustainable evidence documents, and certificates in your virtual safe while they are being submitted for audit to independent verification institutes. The virtual safe is hosted independently from GSES, meaning only you have access to your data guaranteeing secure storage.

Assessments that easily measure your sustainability performance

You can measure your sustainability performance using the GSES standard and the Sustainable Footprint Standard assessments. Organizations will be assessed using the GSES Standard, which measures performance based on your Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainable Procurement, Co² Reduction, Circular Economy, Health & Safety, and Biodiversity. Products will be assessed using the Sustainable Footprint Standard, which measures performance based on your Circular Footprint, Health Footprint, and Environmental Footprint. Your assessment results highlight improvement points and are stored in your private virtual safe until you are ready to apply for official verification or certification.

Independent verifications that prove your sustainability claims

Before your assessment results can be shared on your Rating Card, they need to be verified. You can request independent verifications and
audits to prove that your results are based on accurate sustainability claims. An independent auditor of an official certification institution
will inspect your claims based on the content of the uploaded evidence (Desk Audit), or by physically performing an on-site inspection
(External Audit). You will be certified by partner institutions such as KIWA, Control Union, TMS, UCSL, Audit Independent, and more. Get your
sustainability claims verified and gain recognition for your sustainable efforts.
