GS1 Ireland and Enso sign new partnership on sustainability

Posted on: 15 Feb 2024

ENSO and GS1 Ireland have announced a collaboration agreement that will see the two organisations working together to empower Irish SMEs with the knowledge and tools they need to incorporate sustainability into their business operations, communications and supply chains and to meet their Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) reporting obligations. 

"In today's business landscape, the heightened focus on sustainability resonates more than ever across diverse sectors", noted Mike Byrne, Chrief Executive Officer of GS1 Ireland and member of the GS1 Global Board of Directors. "Companies of all sizes are wholeheartedly embracing Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) principles, diligently exploring innovative avenues to enhance the transparency, flexibility, adaptability and humane aspects of their supply chains. It is unequivocally clear that sustainability is an unattainable goal without the integral component of standards-based traceability. This collective commitment to GS1 standards underscores the transformative shift toward responsible and ethical business practices."

Through GS1 Ireland's Solution Provider Programme, Enso and GS1 Ireland will work together to assist Irish businesses to understand their ESG requirements, to define their sustainability goals, and crucially, to communicate their ESG commitments and progress. "Sustainability is a significant area for businesses to tackle", noted Donal Quinn, Founder of Enso. "Not only are consumers making purchasing decisions based on it, but the ability to win new tenders, renew key contracts or attract investment may depend on ESG commitments and performance. This can be a challenge, but also an opportunity for those businesses who do it right."
