Amer, long a leader in social issues has recently earned the prestigious SA8000® status for Sataswati Global Ltd. its India manufacturing unit. Amer’s social commitment has been a primary focus since Mahesh Chaudhary started the company in 1986. Mr. Chaudhary started the Sataswati Foundation in 2012 focused on aiding, educating, and empowering the artisans of parent company, Saraswatii Global Pvt. Ltd. As a field-based experience, education and assistance are brought to women and men who otherwise would not have had an opportunity to learn, not only essential literacy, but concepts of entrepreneurship that will eventually allow Saraswatii’s artisans to become business owners themselves.
The SA8000® standard is the central document of work at SAI. It is one of the world’s first auditable social certification standards for decent workplaces, across all industrial sectors. It is based on conventions of the ILO, United Nations, and national laws. The SA8000® standard spans industry and corporate codes to create a common language for measuring social compliance. Those seeking to comply with SA8000® have adopted policies and procedures that protect the basic human rights of workers. The management system supports sustainable implementation of the principles of SA8000®: child labor, forced and compulsory labor, health and safety, freedom of association and right to collective bargaining, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours, remuneration.
Amer products can be seen during the upcoming High Point Furniture Market October 21 to 26, 2016 in Amer’s Showroom 3415 in the Showplace Building.
