Intertek Group, a total quality assurance provider to a range of industries worldwide, has launched Total Sustainability Assurance, an independent assurance solution enabling businesses to demonstrate their end-to-end commitment to sustainability. The initiative will provide systemic sustainability programme from both an operational and corporate perspective.

In the last five years, the expectations of all stakeholders - consumers, employees, suppliers, regulators, communities, students, government and shareholders - have continued to rise, demanding that companies demonstrate their commitment to sustainability throughout their businesses with clear goals, precise action plans and transparent reporting. A tipping point has been reached in the world of sustainability, yet the profusion in ESG reporting standards, definitions and terms has made it difficult for corporations to build clear, measurable and authenticated sustainability objectives into their business models.

Intertek research shows that there is a growing demand for end-to-end sustainability solutions covering both the operational and corporate aspects of sustainability. Seventy four per cent of c-suite level respondents agree that customers and other stakeholders are demanding that companies do more in relation to sustainability with 92 per cent acknowledging that some of their supply chain would receive a poor sustainability report if it was fully audited.

Intertek has been supporting the needs of its clients over the years with a real depth and breadth of innovative operational sustainable solutions that address the important operational areas of every company covering environment, products, processes, facilities, assets and systems. Intertek's new Corporate Sustainability certification is a holistic assurance programme that audits and certifies the quality of processes in place based on 10 Intertek proprietary standards that benchmark the end-to-end approach of any company on all aspects of its corporate activities. This ground-breaking innovation is powered by Intertek's global network of technical experts and advanced software platforms, to track progress against clients' own sustainability goals.

"Intertek Total Sustainability Assurance is a holistic programme to help our clients take an end-to-end approach to delivering sustainable activities in each area of their company. Based on our discussions with our clients and our customer research, we are expanding our sustainability offering with a ground-breaking innovation, Intertek Corporate Sustainability certification. Seventy six per cent of senior executives recently interviewed consider that an end-to-end audit programme that would assess, benchmark and independently verify their entire sustainability footprint would be appealing. True to our company's heritage of bringing quality and safety to life with a pioneering spirit, we want Intertek to remain a force for good for many years to come. Sustainability is the movement of our time and at Intertek, we are passionate about supporting the needs of our clients. Indeed, we believe we are born to make the world ever better and we are ready to help corporations address their complex sustainability challenges of today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow," said André Lacroix, CEO of Intertek.
