International — Human Rights at Work
Social Accountability International (SAI) is a global, multi-stakeholder, standards setting organization whose mission is to advance the human rights of workers around the world.
SAI established one of the world’s preeminent social standards—SA8000— a recognized benchmark among the voluntary codes and standards initiatives that employers— including well known brands— use to measure their own
performance and responsibly manage their supply chains. Grounded on the principles of core ILO conventions, UN Conventions, and an ISO-style management system, SA8000 is applicable to virtually all industrial sectors.
Our affiliate Social Accountability Accreditation Service (SAAS) accredits qualified audit organizations to
certify compliance. Over 1.3 million workers are employed in over 2,300 SA8000 certified facilities in 62 countries, across 66 industrial sectors.
SAI also offers training sources, and develops and manages public/private partnerships worldwide.
