IDH is working to secure living wages through the Roadmap on Living Wages. This platform works to strengthen international alignment and to build tangible solutions regarding living wage. Earning a living wage means workers receive sufficient wages to afford a decent standard of living for the worker and their family.

About the Roadmap

To support companies’ effort, IDH developed the Living Wage Roadmap. The Roadmap is the work of partnership: many partners are thinking along on developing solutions to barriers and testing them.

This has led to five clear steps with practical tools through which companies can progress. From measuring to action. For example, you can calculate living wage gaps with the IDH Salary Matrix, and with the IDH Living Wage Action Guide, you can find solutions on how to take steps with your supply chain partners to close living wage gaps.

Already a great group of companies and organizations are part of the Roadmap. Will you join too and use the Roadmap?

Living Wage & Living Income Summit

Over 400 guests from more than 250 organisations from the entire supply chain joined us at the Living Wage and Living Income Summit 2024.

At the Summit, we tapped into the recent developments at the International Labour Organization and the upcoming EU reporting and supply chain regulations. Partners shared existing best practices and lessons learnt to close living wage and income gaps through sustainable procurement practices and collective action with unions and farming organisations.

The Living Wage Summit 2024 was organised together with GIZ and with support from the UN Global Compact.

Understanding the Living Wage

Hear from our partners

“IDH played a key role in converging , aligning efforts to move the living wage agenda in the banana supply chain. To ensure its success, it will require the whole value chain to work collaboratively and to find sustainable solutions together. In addition to listen to all relevant stakeholders, the methodologies and tools developed by IDH enable everyone to work within a similar framework and evaluate living wage gaps in a similar fashion.”
