 German Retailer REWE Group Implements SA8000

SAI trained REWE's Social Performance Team on socially responsible business practices in the fall of 2017.

SAI is partnering with the German retailer REWE Group to support the implementation of socially responsible business practices in the company’s supply chain. Following a six-month training program, a Chinese garment facility supplying for the REWE Group was certified by TÜV Rheinland to the SA8000® Standard in January.

The factory made significant improvements in occupational health and safety. It also established a cross-functional Social Performance Team, which helps ensure the continuous improvement of social performance in the facility. The team is composed of peer-elected worker and manager representatives.

REWE Group has 15,300 stores and over 345,000 employees worldwide. To learn more about REWE Group’s sustainability strategy, click here.
