Transparent and accessible information to speed the adoption, harmonization and convergence of standards focusing on environmental protection, labour rights, business ethics and more
What we do
Working with over 250 standard setting organizations, private and public sector organizations and civil society to map the landscape of sustainability standards providing transparent and neutral information and leveraging this information to promote the adoption of sustainable production, consumption and trade.
Why we do it
MSMEs are disproportionately impacted when required to comply with complex environmental or social and labour standards to access international markets. Many MSMEs lack the necessary capacity and resources to manage sustainability risks and realize the opportunities. To change their production and business practices, MSMEs need tools and targeted guidance.
How we do it
Providing the world’s largest pool of information with trusted and neutral information about sustainability standards and provision of benchmarking and additional services to retailers, national public procurement and standard setting organisations.
What we focus on
Helping MSMEs to implement socially sustainable business practices to increase their competitiveness and reduce adverse business risks and unethical labour practices.
