The challenge

The world is in a transition to a healthy planet and fair society. However, people and institutions that want to accelerate this shift are often stranded in the clutter of sustainability certifications and labels. We are facing an overload of complex information and regulations. That makes it challenging to understand, measure and manage your (and your supply chain’s) sustainability performance.

1.  A score that combines all your sustainability certifications and labels into one verified asset

The GSES Score is based on the GSES System, which aligns more than 550 certifications and labels based on international accepted guidelines and standards. This means the GSES Score represents all kinds of available certifications and labels, translated into one global standard. A breakdown of the GSES Score in shown in the Scorecard. Your verified ‘sustainability business card’, that showcases your sustainability rating to your stakeholders! The Scorecard is published in the GSES database, the world’s only sustainability database that relies on independently verified data.

2.  Independent verifications that prove your sustainability claims

Before your assessment results can be shared on your Scorecard, 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!

3.  Assessments that easily measure your sustainability performance

With none to a few certifications at hand, you can also simply measure your sustainability performance using GSES assessments. Organizations will be assessed using the blocks of the GSES Score, 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 indicates performance based on the Circular Footprint, Health Footprint, and Environmental Footprint. Your assessment results highlight improvement points and are safely stored in your private virtual safe until you are ready to apply for official verification or certification.

4.  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.

 

5.  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 and risks regarding the impact of your purchasing on the environment or regarding social responsibility. With our easy-to-use filter options, it has never been easier to find and compare potential business partners who meet your sustainability requirements.

6.  Invite stakeholders & suppliers to meet your sustainability requirements

As an organization, you can invite your stakeholders and suppliers to be assessed on the GSES Platform. In this way, you can encourage them to become (more) sustainable and follow your sustainability policies. It has never been easier to ensure that your supply chain is transparent and aligned with your sustainability policy. Perform an RFP or Tender request with the GSES invite feature!
