ABOUT VERITÉ

Our vision is a world where people work under safe, fair and legal conditions.

As an independent, non-profit organization, Verité is recognized for its unique credibility. Since 1995, we have partnered with hundreds of corporations, governments, and NGOs to illuminate labor rights violations in supply chains and remedy them to the benefit of workers and companies alike.

Our Goals

To provide businesses with tools that help to eliminate labor abuses.
To empower workers to advocate for their rights.
To create publicly-shared resources that enlighten and drive action.
To contribute our expertise to government labor and human rights policy.

 

The Verité Approach

  • We illuminate problems: From benchmarking policy to evaluating sourcing to field-based interviews, Verité develops a portrait of your supply chain that identifies risk and labor rights abuses.

  • We analyze and report: Verité gathers and interprets information so it has context and
    meaning that sharpens focus and defines direction.

  • We identify solutions: Verité provides actionable recommendations, helping companies address strategic and tactical social responsibility gaps within existing business systems and imperatives.

  • We collaborate and educate: Verité customizes capacity building programs to enhance the skills of managers, workers, auditors, and social responsibility decision-makers.
