Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)
Synergy is focused on creating a more environmentally and socially sustainable world through everything we do. We strive to act ethically and responsibly, reducing our impact on the planet and enhancing the wellbeing of our staff and the communities we work in.
We are therefore developing an ambitious Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy.
Drawing upon the values that define us, we will outline a strategy with clearly defined goals which will provide clarity on how we are fulfilling our climate obligations, safeguarding employee welfare and embracing social issues and embedding ESG in our operating structure.
Synergy is committed to being honest and transparent in the way we measure and report our progress towards meeting our goals. Our road map will be published by April 2024, and will outline our progress as well as our short- and long-term future objectives.
Climate and Environmental Policy
Our Climate and Environment Policy describes our response to minimise our impact on the environment as well as embed climate change adaptation into our decision making. It sets out our principles and commitments to ensure we reduce our impact on the environment, and in particular limit our contribution to pollution, minimise our climate change impact, reduce our consumption of natural resources and minimise our waste and fulfil all of our compliance obligations, including all relevant environmental legislation, including adoption of non-statutory guidance where appropriate to meet our aims.
