Intertek, a total quality assurance provider to a range of industries worldwide, announces the launch of its innovative Total Sustainability Assurance programme for its Indian clients.
This certification will assist companies with an industry-leading, independent assurance solution enabling them to demonstrate their end-to-end commitment to sustainability.
The Total Sustainability Assurance programme aims to provide business with an end-to-end, independent, systemic sustainability programme from both operational and corporate perspectives.
Powered by a global network of technical experts and advanced software platform to track progress against sustainability goals, this corporate sustainability certification will help companies make visible their efforts in sustainability.
This will, in turn, help overcome the proliferation in ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) reporting standards, definitions and terms that have made it difficult for corporations to build clear, measurable and authenticated sustainability objectives into their business models.
Expressing delight, André Lacroix, CEO, Intertek said “Today marks a truly exciting moment for Intertek in India, as we build on our incredible growth journey together at a time when stakeholders are seeking genuine reassurance that corporations are taking an end-to-end sustainability approach across their entire value chain.”
He further added “Our unrivalled expertise in delivering Total Quality Assurance solutions in India means Intertek is uniquely positioned to support the needs of our clients here in delivering truly sustainable results.”
Adding to what André said, Sandeep Das, Regional Managing Director, Intertek South Asia, averred “For over 25 years, Intertek has been delivering innovative, end-to-end solutions to its clients across India, supporting them through their growth and becoming the market leader in assurance, testing, inspection and certification services.”
He added “It is clear that a growing number of companies are taking steps to be more responsible in how they treat their employees, communities and the planet; however they also realise that ESG is necessary but not sufficient. That’s why, as the dynamic Indian economy continues its rapid ascent, we are launching Total Sustainability Assurance to support our clients’ end-to-end commitment to sustainability.”
