The Consumer Sustainability Readiness Index (COSIRI) is a neutral, independent sustainability framework to benchmark sustainability maturity of organisations.
How can COSIRI help you?
COSIRI is an independent framework to help benchmark the sustainability maturity of organisations and their ESG transparency and reporting.
Aimed at putting the power firmly in the consumer’s hands, COSIRI enables consumers to make more sustainable purchasing decisions – which will in turn put pressure on the manufacturing industry to decarbonise and become more sustainable.
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.
How COSIRI will drive change
We aim to positively impact climate change by making it easier for consumers to select the most sustainable products/services.
The process is simple: the consumer scans a QR code at point of purchase, giving them a transparent view of the product’s environmental footprint throughout the entire supply chain.
Through empowering customers, we will spark transformative change in manufacturing and ensure that sustainability is at forefront of the industry.

The advantages of COSIRI
