A catalyst for systemic change, Transparentem spurs companies to play a critical role in remediating abuses at the worksites where they source their products. Through in-depth investigations and strategic engagement with companies, we strive to use corporate leverage to drive change across entire industries.
We choose our areas of focus for the greatest impact, investigating endemic abuses—including child labor, forced labor, and gross environmental degradation—that affect the health and welfare of thousands of workers and their communities. Ultimately, through collective action and collaboration, we strive to fundamentally transform industry practices and bring real, tangible justice to some of the world’s most vulnerable populations.
We are philanthropically funded by foundations and individuals and are tax exempt in the United States under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Mission and Vision
Transparentem advances the well-being of workers and communities by exposing hard truths to those with the power to transform industries. Our goal is to eradicate human rights and environmental abuses in global supply chains.
We envision a sustainable world that is just and equitable for all workers and their communities.
Through in-depth investigations and strategic engagement with companies, we strive to use corporate leverage to drive change across entire industries.
