AFK Services

     In the context of globalization and international competition, many companies source labor-intensive goods or services from developing and newly industrialized countries. However, working conditions in these countries often do not comply with basic labor standards, such as those established by the International Labor Organization (ILO). To address this issue, many companies and associations have created individual codes of conduct and monitoring systems.

​     We work hard to make a difference by complying with – and even exceeding – each industry standard,  and our own sustainability goals. Our team complies with local, state, national and international environmental legislation, and adopts responsible environmental practices with our partners and among our employees.

We believe being “responsible” means doing what is right. It means incorporating social and environmental priorities and practices into our activities, services and our relationships with partners, consumers and employees.

This is AFK’s “standard of excellence”.
