Program areas at Verite

Verite undertook 15 independent, high-quality, original research projects for 12 funders in multiple countries providing original research on key issues and challenges in responsible supply chain sourcing. We leveraged our grassroots access to provide a unique, bottom-up, objective view of labor conditions at the commodity, product, sector, and country level.

Verite completed 103 consulting engagements for 32 clients guiding companies in strengthening internal and supply chain management systems that proactively controlled risks to the business and its employees. Our broad expertise allowed us to support clients across industries in strategic planning, integrating social responsibility requirements into sourcing decisions, and cascading accountability throughout their value chains.

Verite conducted 388 comprehensive audits, investigations, screenings, and reviews to provide insight into working conditions - including forced labor, human trafficking, and child labor - in global supply chains for 45 clients in more than 21 countries. Our approach centered on workers' voices and provided stakeholders with actionable recommendations to address root causes of non-compliance.
