Just how much CO2 can you save by using green parts to repair vehicles, and where do they come from?
As part of ‘Our Road to Tomorrow’, SYNETIQ’s new sustainability initiative, the UK’s largest integrated salvage and vehicle recycling company has published an infographic on green parts use.
Designed to educate and inform the public on the sustainability benefits of green parts, the infographic forms part of the foundation of SYNETIQ’s commitment to sustainable motoring for all.
In one easily digested page, SYNETIQ explains Green Parts, how they’re sourced, their safety and how they help drive a more responsible route to car use.

As part of its ‘Our Road to Tomorrow’ program, SYNETIQ is involved in an ongoing campaign to continually educate the trade and motoring public on the benefits of Green Parts, while working towards becoming a carbon-neutral company.
With a roster of household names as clients, including major insurers, accident management companies, fleets, police forces, logistics companies and vehicle repair bodyshops, the use of genuine OEM green parts produces less CO2 emissions than the manufacture of new replacement items. This negates the impact of manufacturing totally new parts, which require more energy, more raw materials and more cost, aligning perfectly with the waste hierarchy.
By raising awareness of the advantages of Green Parts, SYNETIQ aims to lower the cost of repairs for motorists as well as the environmental impact. By using safety-checked, pre-existing OEM parts, consumers make savings of up to 75% off OEM RRP on parts.
Tom Rumboll, CEO of SYNETIQ said:
“With major insurance groups such as Allianz now allowing private motorists to request Green Parts for their vehicle repairs, as well as fleet users, SYNETIQ is proud of the vast CO2 savings that it is helping to achieve across the industry
“As part of our internal sustainability strategy, titled The Road to Tomorrow, SYNETIQ is investing heavily in ensuring that our own processes are as sustainable as our green parts. From carbon literacy training for employees to increased EV use and even external educational programs for consumers, SYNETIQ is committed to a greener motoring future.”
