Frequently Asked Questions

COSA is a neutral nonprofit consortium dedicated to helping organizations around the world to understand and accelerate their sustainability, serving the public good. We offer a balanced and rigorous understanding of sustainability through effective measurements and technologies that catalyze impacts in social, economic and environmental dimensions.

Since the early 2000s, COSA has pioneered the global adoption of common science-based metrics, believing that we can advance when organizations, governments and businesses speak a common sustainability “language” of accountability in the same way that we have global Generally Accepted Accounting Practices to understand finance.
