Understanding what living wage is and how to

verify this gap is the only way to start closing it.

Living income and living wage are one of the areas of specialization within ImpactBuying Academy. We know that more and more organizations have serious commitments about closing the living wage gap in their supply chains. In order to enable the dialogue between buyer and supplier about closing the gap, a trustworthy evidence about the size of the gap is needed. ImpactBuying is actively contributing to the IDH living wage roadmap link and deliver the specialist and auditor training for all organizations that actively want to work on living wage.

ImpactBuying is also responsible for keeping the overview of all individual auditors that have passed the exams. The identification number of the auditor that passed the Living wage exams can be found here.
