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, locations, and products that link the items and locations and the information pertaining to them. With GS1 Standards at 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.
