We are Circular Globe
A circular economy can only funtion with strong partnerships. SQS and Quality Austria, the two founding partners of Circular Globe, have fostered transparent, impacting cooperations in different spheres for many years. The joint knowledge, know-how and years of rich experience in the fields of ratings and sustainability bring value to our joint European initiative.
The Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS) was founded in 1983 as one of the world's first certification bodies. It audits, assesses and certifies organizations and companies in numerous industries. In addition, it offers a wide range of seminars. SQS is organized as an association and reinvests its profits entirely in its further development, which ensures neutrality and independence. www.sqs.ch
