About Us

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 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.

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.
