ABOUT THAYER CERTIFIED

Our mission

REALIZE THE TRUE VALUE OF SAFE & FAIR LABOR.

It’s something that almost everyone wants, but there is currently a gap in visibility, information and trust between businesses and consumers. We are the first certification and labelling system to unlock the true value of SAFE & FAIR labor for consumers and businesses alike.

Our team

We’re an international team of economists, auditors, academics, marketers and humanists. We’ve been researching sustainability, managing compliance in offices and auditing factories for decades. Our combined experience (and frustration) with existing labor compliance regimes inspired the creation of Thayer Certified and forms the backbone of our brand.
