The future and quality of life is based on the choices that are being made now. That is why sustainable entrepreneurship and the transition to a circular and fair economy and inclusive society are urgent and we can no longer postpone this transition.

Organizations need clear guidelines for sustainability, while at the same time allowing for customization and ambition. The META approach of the Global Sustainable Enterprise System (GSES) fully responds to this. We use the best international frameworks for sustainability, with the largest global acceptance. The 17 Sustainability Goals of the United Nations Agenda

2030 form the overarching agenda and the higher goal.

GSES brings these frameworks together in a coherent and well-organized way.

GSES makes the sustainable performance of organizations visible in the various sub-areas and offers practical tools for assurance and improvement opportunities. The demonstrable ability of the sustainable performances to stakeholders can be obtained by obtaining (partial) certificates. The GSES model (“the GSES House”) and this handbook is aimed at allowing organizations to do as much as possible themselves (self assessments), but can also request support from GSES consultants. Auditing by certification bodies is possible. Organizations can introduce their existing certificates and quality marks, such as the CO2 Performance Ladder, CSR Performance Ladder, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.
