Closing the living wage gap

IDH can support you with:

  • Advice on how to measure the living wage and living income gap in specific supply chains
  • Advice on how to take effective action to close the gap
  • Convening sectoral platforms

IDH supports companies in taking effective action to close the living wage and living income gap in their supply chains. We co-design and co-fund projects, innovate and develop tools to help partners close the gap (e.g. the Salary Matrix and the Sustainable Procurement Kit), and we research best practices at the producer, trader, buyer and retailer level that contribute to living wages and living incomes. We share key insights with our partners on how to make value chains more efficient and effective to close the living wage/income gap.

To drive progress towards living wages and living incomes, IDH also brings together private and public sector, NGOs and other relevant stakeholders to create a common vision, implement projects, increase leverage and to continuously learn to catalyze sustainable transformations within the entire supply chain.
