Social Accountability International (SAI)

Description

Social Accountability International (SAI) is a non-governmental, multi-stakeholder organization whose mission is to advance the human rights of workers around the world. It partners to advance the human rights of workers and to eliminate sweatshops by promoting ethical working conditions, labor rights, corporate social responsibility and social dialogue.

Social Accountability International's shared vision is of decent work everywhere—sustained by widespread understanding that decent work can secure basic human rights while benefiting business.

SAI works to protect the integrity of workers around the world by building local capacity and developing systems of accountability through socially responsible standards. SAI established one of the world's preeminent social standards—the SA8000®standard for decent work, a tool for implementing international labor standards that is being used in over 3,000 factories, across 65 countries and 66 industrial sectors. Many more workplaces are involved in programs using SA8000 and SAI programs as guides for improvement. SAI is one of the world's leading social compliance training organizations, having provided training to over 30,000 people, including factory and farm managers, workers, brand compliance officers, auditors, labor inspectors, trade union representatives and other worker rights advocates.

SAI recognizes that voluntary compliance standards are only one part of what is needed to raise labor law compliance around the world. To that end, SAI has developed training and technical assistance programs to work on the broader context surrounding compliance. Over its history, SAI has developed an array of services all geared towards working with companies, trade unions, NGOs and governments to achieve more socially responsible practices around the world. SAI pulls its capabilities together in comprehensive capacity building programs, as well as offering them on a stand-alone basis.
