What Our Clients Say

Dina Storey | Expo 2020 Dubai

Director, Sustainability Operations

We have adopted a wide-ranging approach to achieving our site-wide sustainability goals, underscoring our bold ambitions with grand action to integrate sustainability into all of our experiences and operations. Our collaboration with GSES System is emblematic of these efforts, supported by the sustainability commitments of our stakeholders as we work together to host one of the most sustainable World Expos in history and create a meaningful, measurable impact beyond the site and our 182-day run.

Jan Oosterbeek | Ecopoint

Key Account Manager

I see the GSES system as a platform in which socially conscious people want to make a difference. By joining the GSES system We want to find new partners and create transparency and visibility for our safe and sustainable concepts. That is why we joined the GSES system.

Peter Potman | Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Deputy Director General Foreign Economic Relations in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and one of the leaders of the trade mission

I am very proud that the Netherlands is the first country to receive the RISE certification and the GSES Circular Footprint certification. The Netherlands pavilion unites water, energy and food and stimulates the Circular Economy. In that light, it is very special that the circular footprint of the pavilion is demonstrably 95%.

Eelco Smit | Philips

Sustainability Director

This new calculation method helps to further develop our policy. So we know exactly how many grams of copper, steel and plastic are in our MRI scanners, where this comes from and how much of it has been recycled.

Job Beeckmans | IFS (International Food Services)

Business Development Manager

To make the sustainable aspect of our bussines transparent, IFS has joined the GSES System. This is an overarching sustainability tool with which our own organization and suppliers are tested for sustainability KPI’s in different fields. This allows us to make it clear to our costumer how we work, it is not about the food itself but also about the sustainability of the packaging and of the supply chain.

Tjerk Suurenbroek | IRO

Business Development Manager

As a trade association within the offshore energy industry we take corporate responsibility very serious. It is therefore that IRO has been a strong supporter and advocate of GSES and its purpose. From the start we have seen many offshore companies joining GSES as they see the true value of this platform for both their companies and our planet.

H.E. Lody Embrechts | Kingdom of the Netherlands


The Netherlands Pavilion’s theme of ‘Uniting Water, Energy, Food’ contributes to more awareness and international cooperation in achieving some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the pavilion, we will be showcasing how working together we can contribute towards achieving some of the SDGs, thereby reducing the footprint too as low as possible. We are delighted that the Dutch company GSES System has developed such sophisticated measurement techniques regarding sustainable impact that help contribute to these important goals

John Beelen | Wear2Go


We believe in sustainability with circularity as the main goal. Greenwashing is no longer sufficient; prove it. Show it transparently and leave the choice to the customer. The GSE® System is a great tool and will certainly help accelerate sustainable contributions.

Evert Hamblok | Koppert

Manager Regulatory Affairs

The vision and mission of Koppert are the basis for our definition of sustainability and the main drivers for our desire to reduce our impact on the environment. To be successful in our ambitions, we need to measure our impact and report on it. We collaborate with GSES as they are experts in sustainability standards and reporting and have developed an interesting approach and platform to showcase sustainability performance of organizations similar to ours. GSES methods and standards are in line with our needs. They also keep track of the performance on SDGs. GSES help us to put sustainability measurements in place based on our current sustainability KPIs. In this regard, we will be collaborating on a research project defining new methodologies, standards and tools for our new sustainability KPIs.
