Our Responsibility

Our Ever Better Approach to Sustainability

Sustainability

At Intertek, we have a very clear purpose – to bring quality, safety and sustainability to life, now and for future generations. It shapes everything we do and how we do it. This is imperative to our own business activities and operations, and our continuing innovation of our Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification solution, to help our clients become Ever Better.

Support

We are deeply committed to supporting our customers, having a positive impact on our people and communities, minimising our environmental impacts, operating with integrity by doing business the right way, and pursuing our socially responsible activities through living our strong values every day, everywhere.

We work with many of the world’s largest multinational corporations and best-known brands to improve the social, ethical and environmental consequences of their products, services and supply chains.

As a world leader in sustainability services, and a purpose-led organisation, it is important for us to ensure that our own standards are as high as those we provide for our clients. That’s why our approach to our own sustainability programme and reporting follows the ten Intertek Corporate Sustainability Certification standards – listed below – with which we audit our clients.

Our Methodology

Intertek has more than 130 years of experience working at different ports worldwide, and we will use their expertise in operations to establish our QC/QA needs for Somalia.

Implementation of Intertek services ensures that Somalia’s agreements with other countries will become even more potent. Still, Intertek’s services will allow the private sector to reach international markets that were not accessible to them because of its lack of quality control and standards.

Over the next few years of operations, MARU will help establish a “Green Line System” for the port of Mogadishu to make clearing and forwarding happen fast- er for the clients in Somalia. MARU Port Services Limited will develop these procedures through Intertek’s expertise and criteria checklists to help make Mogadishu the port of choice for the Horn of Africa.
