Intertek Launches Ground-breaking Total Sustainability Assurance to Support Its Clients' End-to-end Sustainability Commitment
- Given broad-based and ever higher stakeholder expectations, corporations recognise that their commitment to sustainability must be end-to-end and that ESG* is necessary but not sufficient.
- Sustainability has to start at the heart of the company's operations - where quality, safety and sustainability are seen as the foundations of driving sustainable growth - and has to take a holistic approach to cover all aspects of corporate activities.
Intertek'sinnovative Corporate Sustainability Certification provides clients with independent verification across their entire footprint, authenticating their end-to-end commitment to sustainability.
