As part of the Roadmap on Living Wages, IDH wants to recommend trustworthy ways of verifying calculations of living wage gaps. For those interest in independent verification, IDH is currently developing a process for recognizing organizations that can help verify calculations on remuneration and living wage gaps through the appropriate use of the Salary Matrix.

Independent verification carried out by IDH-recognized organizations can support dialogue between producers, workers’ organizations and buyers for finding solutions to address potential differences between current remuneration and living wages.

This process will be made available on this webpage during the second half of 2020.
