As we take important steps to decarbonise our business, our Intertek Mexico City laboratory has become the latest of our global sites to install a solar photovoltaic ('PV') system. The impressive system will generate over 60% of the site’s electricity from renewable energy sources, creating an annual emissions saving equivalent to the carbon absorbed by more than 8,000 trees.

Mexico becomes the eighth country in which we are producing and consuming our own electricity, following Australia, Bangladesh, India, Poland, South Korea, Sweden and the UK, where we also have site-specific solar installations. We are continually looking to increase this number by assessing the potential for and impact of installing other solar PV systems at various sites around the world.
