GS1 US maintains not-for-profit status to remain a neutral organization. This is important when gathering together a diverse array of supply chain partners participating in our initiatives or workgroups.

Like any for-profit company, we set annual goals and objectives. This is done in collaboration with our Board of Governors to ensure our objectives support the progress in the industries we serve. Helping our members increase revenue and reduce costs is always a priority.
