Synthesia Technology Group works every day on standards and responsible behaviours that all people related to Grupo Synthesia must follow and put into practice. We are all responsible for complying with these reference guidelines, essential principles to guarantee our business model.
Committed to the environment
At Synthesia Technology we are using PET recycled from plastic bottles in the production of a key raw material used in the manufacture of high-performance insulation for building construction. We are demonstrating that it is possible to use plastic responsibly, upcycling it into a brand-new product that helps to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, for the benefit of all.
We are Planet Passionate
At Synthesia Technology we have organized various environmental volunteer actions to clean up plastic waste on the Barcelona coast.
These volunteer initiatives are part of the awareness campaign on some of the biggest challenges that we face today as society such as global warming, sustainability and pollution of our natural environment.
With actions such as the collection of plastic waste and its recycling, we take action to develop a circular economy and promote greater sustainability and environmental awareness.
