Think Green Initiative (TGI)

Consumers, governments and communities alike are concerned with how the manufacturing of consumer products affects the environment.


While retailers and brands work to demonstrate good environmental governance across their supply chains, suppliers are concurrently being asked to continuously improve their environmental performance. Intertek’s Think Green Initiative (TGI) empowers leading suppliers to showcase environmental good practices while simultaneously:

  • Reducing costs
  • Improving material efficiency
  • Practicing green manufacturing good practice, and
  • Ensuring the organization meets the requirements of tomorrow’s employees, communities, investors and customers

With Intertek’s web-based platform and deep environmental expertise, TGI has emerged as the perfect tool for evaluating, reviewing and monitoring factories’ environmental performance and ultimately assuring improved performance.

The Think Green Initiative Toolkit Includes:

  • Two Core Compliance Modules
    – Environmental Legal Compliance Review
    – Environmental Management System (EMS) Review
  • Six Environmental Modules
    – Water
    – Energy
    – Hazardous Materials, Equipment and Waste
    – Air Emissions
    – Noise Emissions
    – Sustainable Production

  • Meeting environmental regulatory requirements
  • Reducing both environmental footprint and costs
  • Improving material efficiency through better resource management, including recycling, reuse of materials, and waste reduction
  • Acquiring sustainable business practices
