Consumer Sustainability Industry Readiness Index

A neutral, independent sustainability framework to benchmark sustainability maturity of organisations.

Introducing COSIRI​

The Consumer Sustainability Industry Readiness Index (COSIRI) is a comprehensive framework and set of tools designed to assist manufacturers, regardless of size or industry, to embed sustainability into all their operations. COSIRI assesses 24 dimensions across four fundamental building blocks of sustainability: Strategy and Risk Management, Sustainable Business Processes, Technology, and Organisation and Governance. An additional focus area on Green House Gas (GHG) Emissions is included to address the increasing importance of GHG reporting required by regulators and stakeholders.

COSIRI serves as an independent benchmarking system to assess the sustainability maturity of manufacturers, help establish future roadmaps, and enhance Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) transparency and reporting for manufacturing organisations. COSIRI takes into account the evolving global landscape as it guides organisations and manufacturers through their sustainability transformation journeys.

1. COSIRI Framework

COSIRI is an independent framework to help benchmark the sustainability maturity of organisations and their ESG transparency and reporting.

2. Sustainability Journey

After assessment, COSIRI Analytics will give a report of the site, which includes benchmarking against industry peers, and a guide to transform its sustainability journey

3. Scanning the emblem

Assessed site will be given an emblem. By scanning the emblem, consumers can see the company’s sustainability achievements, and make more sustainable purchasing decisions — putting the power firmly in consumer’s hands. This put the pressure on the manufacturing industry to be most sustainable.

4. Transparency and Visibility

COSIRI will also allow for greater transparency and visibility in ESG reporting in manufacturing. This way, manufacturers will be better able to monitor and track their progress towards sustainability goals.
