About the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation

EQUAL-SALARY is a not-for-profit foundation established since 2010. It promotes equal pay for women and men through proposing the first and only certification, based on a robust and transparent methodology.

The EQUAL-SALARY certification allows organizations to verify and communicate that they pay women and men fairly. It is a practical and scientific solution to achieve transparency, while preserving confidentiality.

The development of the EQUAL-SALARY certification has been financially supported by the Federal Office for Gender Equality. Its methodology has been used as a reference by the Swiss Federal Court of High Justice.

EQUAL-SALARY is the only certification for equal pay highlighted by the European Commission in a report on Gender Pay Gap. EQUAL-SALARY is a member of EPIC (Equal Pay International Coalition) and of the UN Global Compact.

The  EQUAL-SALARY certification process, a symbol of excellence, is implemented in partnership with PwC and SGS.
