Corporate Social Responsibility India
At Intertek India, we are passionate about our purpose, striving to make the world a better, safer, and more sustainable place for all, now and for future generations.
Our CSR arm was started in 2015 to help address the most pressing problems plaguing the country, through projects of education, health, livelihood, skill development, environmental sustainability, and other thematic areas.
We believe in Serving Our Communities — Connect and Give Back.
As individuals and as a company, we are focused on achieving a positive impact within the communities where we operate, through indirect economic impact and by supporting local causes, promoting health, and welfare, and partnering with non-profits.
This is part of our mission to build back the world Ever Better with higher standards of quality, safety, and sustainability for all. We have accelerated our own sustainability performance as well as the development of innovative solutions to help customers deliver their sustainability agendas. We will continue to deliver sustainable value for all our stakeholders, customers, and our communities through sustainable development; leveraging technology and innovation to increase efficiency and productivity with less impact on the environment.
We strongly emphasize Community Welfare as part of Intertek India Private Limited Corporate Social Responsibility (IIPL CSR) by utilising the three major pillars of development:
- Health and Hygiene
- Poverty Alleviation
In addition to these pillars, we offer aid and assistance for disaster relief and rehabilitation.
Our Flagship Programs:
Health and Hygiene
Swachh Parisar – Swachh Bharat
Intertek India has run a major hygiene and sanitation improvement project in the areas of Mohan Cooperative Industrial Estate in a phased manner since 2015. We have established a local drainage system as well as a waste disposal mechanism to improve sanitation facilities, improved hygiene and health standards through paving of roads and filling of potholes, and expanded the area's green cover with tree plantations.
Clean and paved roads, better hygiene and sanitation standards, safety and comfort of access, and a marked development in the quality of life in the area have made a noticeable positive difference for our stakeholders and contributed to community development and upkeep.
Happiness Kit Distribution
The pandemic affected millions of migrants, labourers, and underprivileged members of society. The Happiness Kit Distribution Program aims to bridge the nutrition gap in school-going children through the provision of mid-day meals, hygiene facilities, and learning tools in Government schools. The immunity, hygiene, and educational supplies are distributed to the Midday Meal beneficiaries through the ‘Happiness Box’ program at their school premises.
The main objective of the program is to ensure nutritious meals for the children, boost their immunity and health, cover their basic hygiene needs, and ensure their continuous learning, particularly amid the COVID crisis. Intertek India successfully distributed 32010 Happiness Kits to Government school children in Delhi during the year 2020-2023.
Employability & Skill Development Program
The unemployment rate among the youth in India is 54%, which can be largely attributed to a widening skill gap in the labour force. The underprivileged youth does not have access to training and skill-building opportunities, especially in job readiness skills and TIC-specific technical skills. Intertek India aims to reduce this immense skill gap through skill development program implemented across the country. Tirupur is a thriving textile hub with TIC labs. But currently, there is a mismatch between skilled manpower and industry requirements. The generic BSc in Chemistry/Textiles do not meet the job-specific technical requirements.
Our Tirupur Skill Development Project is a unique endeavour to enhance employability as well as employment in the youth population. The project is in ongoing mode being implemented in a phased manner over a period of 3 years. It will help underprivileged youth, especially women, to access better job opportunities and empower them to break out of the cycle of poverty. 612 targeted beneficiaries will be certified as either Lab Assistants (Textile & Quality Analysis), Chemists, Senior Chemists, or Customer Coordinator Executives. Training is being provided free of cost in all trades, as these are the sectors that face a dearth of skilled workers and is expected to remain so for the next few decades. The project is being undertaken in partnership with Reviving Green Revolution (RGR) Cell, a Tata Trusts initiative, which is known for imparting vocational training in Tamil Nadu. All successful candidates who pass the final assessment will be provided with a joint certification.
