How We Work With Industries

Collaborating with industries to unlock the value of GS1 Standards

Every day, companies use data to deliver outstanding products and services, increase transparency and visibility, improve safety, and drive growth. GS1 Standards provide unique identification of items, parties, and locations, that allow them to be linked with relevant information and data.

With GS1 Standards as the foundation, businesses:

  • Gain efficiencies
  • Expand capabilities and services
  • Create better ways of doing business
  • Adapt to new business challenges
  • Stay competitive

GS1 US® works in a neutral and not-for-profit role with industry and related stakeholders to identify solutions and establish ways of doing business that benefit all companies.
