At Synergy Flavors, we are committed to sustainability and are actively taking steps to reduce the carbon footprint of every stage of our business activities – from the raw materials we source, to the end use of our ingredients.
We have developed a sustainability plan which sets out detailed ambitions, initiatives and specific targets in key areas to which we have committed to achieving between 2013 and 2017.
Some of our sustainability initiatives and investments include:
- Our new US headquarters has been designed to meet the US Green Building Council's LEED Certification Standards. This ensures that the state-of-the-art facility is aligned with our ongoing sustainability plan and furthers our reputation as an industry leader in corporate social responsibility.
- Our facility in Hamilton, Ohio features a variety of processes and capabilities designed to help reduce its environmental impact. For example, the facility sends between five and eight million pounds of biomaterial to a local composter every year, reducing the amount of waste it sends to the landfill.
- The Ohio site has also installed a ‘closed loop’ system for its water cooling pumps. The facility previously used mains water for cooling, which was drained immediately following use. By initiating a closed loop system, the plant has been able to save over one million gallons of water a year.
- In addition, we have also installed high efficiency lights at our Hamilton facility. These ensure that lights are activated only when motion is sensed, reducing unnecessary energy output.
