Ethical principles

Technopac and our partners live and act according to ethical principles which, since 2009, have been laid down by SAI (Social Accountability International), an international standard SA8000 which is one of the world’s most demanding social standards. SA8000 is based on the ILO Convention principles. The Convention for Children’s Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights SA8000 covers the following areas of regulation:
