Transparency and traceability are essential if, globally, we are to achieve responsible consumption and production patterns that will enable more countries and regions to transition to a circular economy.

Our solution is The Sustainability Pledge - a series of policy recommendations, guidelines and standards that enable industry actors to authenticate their sustainability claims.

Companies can join The Sustainability Pledge by implementing our toolbox, including opensource blockchain and DNA tracking solutions.
