AKG India has the SA 8000 Certificate

AKG India Ltd. is certified with SA 8000 and ensures the company is operating based on the principles of the international human rights norms and national labour laws to promote worker's best interest with a view to sustainable livelihoods and employment.

It also ensures that worker's right and well-being is not a 'burden' for the AKG group but an investment in human resources that leads to healthy and sustainable workplace for all.
The key areas like exploitation of child labour, forced labour, health and safety, freedom of association and collective bargaining, discrimination, disciplinary practices, working hours and remuneration were audited by "TÜV-Rheinland". AKG India fulfills the requirements of SA 8000 standards and achieved this milestone certification within one year of its official inauguration.
SA8000 follows the structures of both the Quality Management Standards ISO9000 and the Environment Management Standard ISO14000, and emphasizes the importance of an on-going improvement process. This certification ensures that AKG India enjoys competitive advantage and enables us to demonstrate proper social accountability when bidding for international contracts or expanding locally to accommodate new business and supports our corporate vision and build and reinforce the loyalty of our employees, customers, stakeholders and supports better supply chain management and performance.
SA 8000 certification allows us to ensure compliance with global standards and reduce the risk of negligence, public exposure and possible litigation.
