Cloudsyte: A solution for sustainability compliance



Cloudsyte is a Sustainability Compliance software designed to assist global brands in maintaining compliance with all Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) pillars. The software helps brands reduce risks associated with their suppliers and ensure compliance with regulated substances in their products through analysis of their Bill of Materials.


The importance of ESG compliance for global brands cannot be understated. Companies that prioritize sustainability and ethical practices are increasingly being rewarded by consumers, investors, and regulators. By using Cloudsyte, global brands can easily manage their compliance with various ESG regulations and standards, reducing the risk of non-compliance and reputational damage.


Cloudsyte's supplier-level compliance feature helps companies assess and manage the risks associated with their suppliers, ensuring that they are following ethical and sustainable practices. This can include evaluating their labor practices, environmental impact, and business ethics.


At the product level, Cloudsyte's analysis of a brand's Bill of Materials can help identify any regulated substances that may be present. This can be crucial for ensuring compliance with laws such as the Global Automotive Declarable Substance List (GADSL), REACH, and the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA).


Overall, Cloudsyte is a valuable tool for global brands looking to prioritize ESG compliance and build a reputation for sustainability and ethical practices.
