Social standard SA8000 and its requirements
Storck is certified according to the internationally accredited social standard Social Accountability 8000 (SA8000). SA8000 is an international standard, which was founded by the non-profit organisation SAI (Social Accountability International). A company that is audited and certified according to SA8000 documents a socially responsible management system accounting for the rights of employees, their working conditions and elementary human rights in the business operations of a company.
The major demands of SA8000 relate to the issues of child labour, slavery, health and safety, freedom of association, discrimination, disciplining, working hours, salary and the management system to ensure these aspects.
