Cepaa.org tries to promote human rights for workers around the world
Social Accountability International - SAI Home
Welcome to Social Accountability International (SAI). Our mission is to promote human rights for workers around the world as a standards organization, ethical supply chain resource, and programs developer. Please visit our Country Programs page to learn about our initiatives in Central America , Vietnam and China .
SAI promotes workers' rights primarily through our voluntary SA8000 system . Based on the International Labor Organization (ILO) standards and U.N. Human Rights Conventions, SA8000 is widely accepted as the most viable and comprehensive international ethical workplace management system available.
SAI works with an array of stakeholders who are instrumental in the ever-continuing effort to improve and implement the SA8000 system. Our approach cannot be effective unless every key stakeholder has a “say” with regard to its evolution. Therefore, SAI works with companies (such as the Gap, Inc., Co-op Italia, and Chiquita Brands International), consumer groups, non-governmental organizations (NGOs like Amnesty International and C.A.R.E.), labor organizations (which currently include a total of 15 million workers in their ranks), governmental agencies, and certification bodies around the world. SAI accredits the certification bodies for SA8000 auditing to ensure that workers receive the just and humane treatment they deserve.
