We aim to set an example for all future companies to adopt the most sustainable and ethically driven deliverables.
By implementing our sustainable procurement policy and environment policy, Start Campus can influence the supply chain sustainability and push the global industry to innovate, build and deliver green solutions.

To achieve company wide as well as global sustainability targets, we follow successful models of well-structured guidelines.
Sustainability Standards We Follow
The GRI Standards are the most widely used sustainability reporting standards in the world. They provide a framework for companies to report on their economic, environmental, and social impacts, in addition to performance. The GRI Standards are designed to be flexible and allow companies to tailor their reporting to their specific needs and context.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 26000 is a guidance standard on social responsibility. It provides guidance on how companies can operate in a socially responsible manner, and it covers a wide range of topics, including human rights, labor practices, the environment, and governance.
Finally, Start Campus follows the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Standards. These provide a framework for companies to report on their sustainability performance in a way that is financially transparent. The SASB Standards focus on financial performance and the material sustainability issues that are most likely to impact a company’s financial performance.
Start Campus is unwavering in its commitment to sustainability, making it an integral part of our corporate identity. This framework enables us to measure and report on our economic, environmental, and social impacts, and guide our decision-making towards a sustainable future.
We invite you to join us on this transformative journey towards a more sustainable and responsible world. Together, we can make a meaningful difference. For more information about Start Campus, visit Sustainability for the Industry.
