Why equal pay matters

The time for change is now

We strongly believe that equal pay is a basic human right. And the time has come to make our mission a reality.

That’s why we’ve committed to the principles of the United Nations Global Compact. And why we pledge to promote its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of ‘Gender Equality’, ‘Decent Work and Economic Growth’, ‘Reduced Inequalities’ and ‘Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions’.

EQUAL-SALARY is a member of EPIC – the Equal Pay International Coalition and is recognised by Equileap as a gender equality audit – because joining forces to gain momentum, be part of the big picture and finally tackle the gender pay gap around the globe in practice is part of our vision of a better world for both women and men, regardless of their ethnic identity.

Getting EQUAL-SALARY certified sends out a powerful message, proving that your company has a fair wage policy. You’re setting an example, you become a leader within your industry and create solid foundations for your ESG strategy.

Doing the right thing not only feels good; it’s contagious.
