The national awards ceremony is a celebration of the best of the green economy, bringing together many inspiring businesses and individuals that are striving towards a sustainable, net-zero emission landscape. 

Headquartered on Bentley Moor Lane in Adwick-le-Street, SYNETIQ is a thriving Doncaster business, having made the final in three categories at the 2020 Doncaster Business Awards, as well as being included in Yorkshire Business Insider’s 50 Most Exciting Companies list for 2021. 

Now shortlisted in the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards’ Circular Economy Project of the Year and Leader of the Year categories, SYNETIQ is competing against photography giants Canon and the Royal Bank of Scotland Group, with the winner of each category announced in London on 22nd September.

The exciting news follows SYNETIQ’s announcement in May of ‘Our Road to Tomorrow’ – their mission to be the most trusted and sustainable business in its sector. This included commissioning a study into the true CO2 footprint of its operations, and the CO2 savings that can be achieved by using green parts in automotive repairs – highlighting the environmental benefits of integrated salvage and recycling. 

Over the last two years, the business has helped clients avoid 5.5 million KG of CO2 through the supply of green parts alone – the equivalent CO2 of powering 662 homes for one year.

“SYNETIQ embodies the circular economy with a business model consistent with the waste hierarchy,” said CEO Tom Rumboll. “By utilising the four Rs approach of reduce, reuse, remanufacture and recycle, our integrated approach ensures that, where possible, vehicles are kept in life and, when they can’t be put back on the road, are compliantly dismantled to maximise reuse and minimise environmental impact.” 

“It’s amazing to be shortlisted. I’m extraordinarily proud of all the hard work that has brought us here and of our colleagues across the entire business, as we lead the way in creating a vehicle recycling industry we can all be proud of.”

In achieving bronze status, SYNETIQ has proven its commitment to understanding carbon footprint as an organisation, to educate 40% of its workforce to become carbon literate, and to maintain a low carbon culture within all levels of the organisation.
