Social Accountability Programs
Which accreditations can I use to meet social criteria?
While GOTS does not require additional certification to a social accountability program, accreditation to any of the following programs will meet the criteria required:
- Social Accountability 8000
- Fair World Foundation
- SMETA-Sedex report (issued within the last year)
- Amfori BSCI
- Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP)
If you need assistance in assessing your current practices, GOTS recommends using Social Accountability International’s Social Fingerprint. This program will help measure your existing social performance and set benchmarks for improvement.
