TRANSPARENTEM is a discreet, non-profit unit that adopts frontline investigative reporting and forensic methods in compliance with international ethical standards to illuminate supply chains and spur eradication of human and environmental abuses. A public service initiative, Transparentem is a sentinel, not a saboteur, to industries at inflection points. The unit believes that securing and improving the lives and environments of workers at all tiers of off-shored industry must start with independent, methodical inquiry. The initial recipients of Transparentem’s intelligence reports are those whose procurement strategies can rapidly transform markets. The unit commits to telling those recipients—principally brands and retailers that will receive the reports free-of-charge—what they may not, but should, know about those with whom they do business. This includes the activities of their direct and indirect suppliers. After allowing such recipients grace periods for remediation, Transparentem discloses the reports to the public through strategic intermediaries in order to build a sense of urgency, galvanize collective resolve, mobilize resources, and remedy highlighted problems. The unit’s unprecedented approach orchestrates a cross-border network to illuminate all production tiers, industry by industry. Thereby, it will foster closer, longer-term, strategic relationships between buyers and the sustainable, ethical, scaled, and profitable suppliers of the future. Ultimately, in the focus industries, grave abuses should become rare aberrations, quickly remediated after exposure.
