Our Responsibility


We are here to make the world a better, safer and more sustainable place

At Intertek, we have a very clear purpose – to bring quality, safety and sustainability to life, now and for future generations. It shapes everything we do and how we do it. This is imperative to our own business activities and operations, and our continuing innovation of our Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification solution, to help our clients become Ever Better.

We are deeply committed to supporting our customers, having a positive impact on our people and communities, minimising our environmental impacts, operating with integrity by doing business the right way, and pursuing our socially responsible activities through living our strong values every day, everywhere.

We work with many of the world's largest multinational corporations and best-known brands to improve the social, ethical and environmental consequences of their products, services and supply chains.

As a world leader in sustainability services, and a purpose-led organisation, it is important for us to ensure that our own standards are as high as those we provide for our clients. That’s why our own sustainability programme and reporting follows the ten Intertek Corporate Sustainability Certification standards with which we audit our clients.

Read more about Sustainability at Intertek and the progress we have made against the ten standards in our 2019 Sustainability Report.

Intertek has been a force for good for over 130 years. Indeed, we believe we are Born to Make the World Ever Better.
