Intertek’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Advisory Services help companies identify areas of risk and skillfully navigate the rapidly changing landscape of sustainability

Companies are working to define their sustainability strategy, engage with stakeholders, and to better understand sustainability and ESG reporting frameworks in order to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.


Companies understand investors’ growing interest in ESG, and know that having a strategy and roadmap is necessary for long-term success. Still, many of them need support to effectively scale up their ESG programs. Building commitment throughout the organization can be challenging; reporting and analysis is key to building this commitment, and to reaching a broader audience.
