The SA8000 workplace standard is the central document of SAI. This standard is the benchmark against which companies and factories measure their performance. Those seeking to comply with SA8000 have adopted policies and procedures that protect the basic human rights of workers.
Social Accountability International (SAI) works to improve workplaces and combat sweatshops through the expansion and further development of the international workplace standard, SA8000, and the associated SA8000 verification system.
SAI is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development, implementation and oversight of voluntary verifiable social accountability standards. SAI is committed to ensuring that standards and the systems for verifying compliance with such standards are highly reputable and publicly accessible.
