As a fully remote business, Synterex recognizes the importance of ensuring that all employees have the information and resources they need to make greener choices in their own homes. To accomplish this goal, the Green Team established a monthly Green Newsletter to be distributed to all employees. The newsletters will help educate employees on steps they can take to reduce their carbon footprints and live more sustainably. The topic of our first newsletter was energy saving practices for the holiday season.
First Community Green Initiative
Synterex has made a pledge to give back to our communities by participating in local green initiatives and service projects. For our first initiative, Synterex employees were given paid time to participate in a community environmental activity of their choosing. These events ranged from picking up litter to removing invasive plant species from local parks. Not only did it feel good to take greater responsibility for our local environment, but it was also a great opportunity to spend more time enjoying the outdoors with friends and family. We look forward to participating in more green initiatives in the coming years!
Formation of Synterex Green Team
In January 2022, a diverse group of Synterex employees representing all departments in the organization formed our first 'green team.' The green team will lead our company's greening efforts and ensure we are making consistent progress toward our goals. The team meets bi-weekly to plan and implement new green initiatives and discuss ways to make our company more sustainable.
