Who we are

Who we are

Our purpose is to harness the power of standards
to transform the way people work and live.

We’re a community of more than 60,000 members working in retail, healthcare, construction and other sectors.

We're one of 118 local GS1 memberships organisations operating across 150 countries for the benefit of our members, their consumers and wider society.

We have an active role to play in delivering the traceability and data sharing infrastructure that enable businesses and their consumers to make more informed, sustainable and safer choices.

Our globally recognised standards are essential for powering the three pillars of traceability – the ability to identify, capture and share interoperable data. For more than 50 years we have used this infrastructure to help industry adapt, thrive, adopt ambitious new commitments and make demonstratable improvements.
