More and more companies throughout the world are aware that their commercial activities directly affect the society in which they live and that future business success is closely linked to key social values.
The international standard SA 8000 will enable you to determine the production performance of your organisation and make its activities socially responsible. This, in turn, will guarantee transparent and ethical behaviour by your company and contribute to the health and well-being of society.
The SA 8000 standard is designed for all types of organisations, regardless of type of activity, size or location. Although social responsibility primarily remains the concern of large transnational corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises are also becoming increasingly involved in this process. This is mainly due to the ethical and social requirements placed on suppliers and contractors by “socially responsible” corporations.
