Intertek brings think green initiative
Aug '10
Intertek, a leading provider of quality and safety solutions serving a wide range of industries around the world, has launched 'Think Green Initiative' (TGI) a tool kit for suppliers that enables them to showcase environmental good practices and evaluate, review and monitor factory environmental performance, to ultimately ensure improved performance.

TGI benefits businesses by providing greater visibility on environmental commitment and performance by helping them to meet environmental regulatory requirements, improve material efficiency through better resource management, including recycling, reuse of materials and waste reduction, to help achieve good corporate governance and preferred supplier status.

"The emphasis on going green isn't just a passing trend, it is definitely here to stay. With many national and international companies recognizing the benefits of being eco-friendly, the green industry is growing by the day," says Mr. David Horlock, Global VP-Audits & Inspection, Intertek. "Though companies are now realizing the need to go green, many think cost of going green is prohibitive. In actuality, the figures today indicate that as a result of measuring, monitoring and acting green, factories are saving approximately 20 to 200 times the cost of the program."

The TGI toolkit includes two Core Compliance Modules for Environmental Legal Compliance Review and Environmental Management System (EMS) Review. Additionally, it comprises six Environmental Modules on Water, Noise Emissions, Air Emissions, Hazardous Materials, Equipment & Waste and Energy & Sustainable Production.

"Organizations across the globe are going green in terms of their products and processes. While retailers and brands work to demonstrate good environmental governance across their supply chains, suppliers are concurrently being asked to continuously improve their environmental performance," said Mr. Dilip Gianchandani, Regional Director at Consumer Goods, Intertek. He further adds, "Intertek's TGI enables suppliers to reduce costs, improve material efficiency, practice green manufacturing good practices and ensure the organization meets the requirements of tomorrow's employees, communities, investors and customers."

TGI also helps manufacturers to meet the regulatory requirements related to the environment and also assists them to reduce both environmental footprints and related costs.
