Verité is the leader in the field of corporate social responsibility (CSR). The U.S. based organization works directly with companies to manage labor in their supply chains. Verité operates through four different programs: social auditing; training; research; and consulting.
Verité provides standards for businesses that are derived from their own thorough on-the-ground research and experience. Verité’s research shows that forced labor can occur at any point in a supply chain. Verité reaches every level, including factories, raw materials, and the recruitment of workers. Their invaluable expertise has enabled companies to protect their workers when companies have found problems and to help implement long-term solutions.
Some of their most innovative tools and practices include:
The Help Wanted Tool Kit, which provides brands and suppliers with the necessary tools to help fight forced labor in their global supply chains, focuses on fair hiring practices.
Risk Evaluation by Country & Sector - helping companies to understand the risks they take by sourcing products and commodities in specific sectors and countries, and training to respond effectively.
