Corporate Sustainability

Intertek’s sustainability strategy includes work we are doing to help our customers, partner with our local communities and reduce our own ecological footprint.

Following an external review in December 2016, Intertek, for the first time, became a constituent of the FTSE4GOOD Index. Inclusion within the index recognises the progress we have made in our internal and external sustainability activities, as well as in our Group reporting on sustainability.

Intertek has also formed a Joint Venture with ABC Analitic in Mexico, creating the market leader in the provision of Environmental testing services in the country, focused on the prevention and control of water pollution, further expanding our sustainability offering to our customers.

Across our business, our people provide Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification ('ATIC') services which assist our customers in mitigating the environmental impacts of their products, processes and operations, and in 2016, social and environmental assessments of entire supply chains were also a key area of focus for our customers. Our people are passionate about their work and are proud to be involved in activities which generate a positive impact for society and the environment.

We are focused on ensuring that our strategy and culture provides our people with the right platform to grow and develop their careers, but also allows them to be involved in activities which are socially responsible and enables them to engage with the communities in which they live and work.
