What is a Textile Social Audit?
A social audit enables evaluation of the ability of a manufacturer to comply with local labor laws and international social standards.
SgT has a pool of SA8000 certified auditors with a textiles background. The auditors will check the manufacturer’s compliance with local labor law, international best practices, and the brand’s code of conduct. The goal is to assure that your supply chain is socially compliant, reducing the risk of working with non-compliant factories which could lead to damage to your brand’s reputation if you were found to be selling goods produced in illegal or unsafe working conditions.
We offer tailor-made assessments to meet customers’ objectives and challenges:
