The Syntegon Group has published its first sustainability report, creating more transparency and providing greater insight into its environmental, social, and responsible corporate governance practices. Syntegon prepared the report for fiscal year 2022 with reference to the recognized sustainability reporting standard of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

Key actions for fiscal year 2022 include:

  • Syntegon contributed to several of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals, such as ending hunger and ensuring healthy lives for all, by manufacturing packaging solutions that protect products from dehydration and humidity to preserve their nutritional value, freshness, and flavor, and ensuring medicines are produced and packaged to the highest safety standards.
  • The company made transitioning from conventional plastic packaging to paper and more recyclable mono-materials a renewed focal point. For instance, its new PMX packaging machine for ground coffee and whole beans processes recyclable mono-materials and enables condition monitoring to save energy and conserve materials. Syntegon also integrated lock-style technology in its Sigpack TTM cartoner platform to curb energy and material consumption.
  • The company developed a method of calculating the carbon emissions of equipment in its portfolio to offer food and pharmaceutical manufacturers a totally transparent view of deployed technologies’ carbon footprint.
  • In alignment with the 1.5-deg target of the Paris Agreement on climate change, Syntegon reduced its total energy consumption by 11% and its emissions by 17% compared to 2021. The company installed new photovoltaic systems at five sites.
  • With the Syntegon Learning World, the company offers its workforce a demand-driven training portfolio. On average, employees devoted 11 hours to training and professional development in 2022. Syntegon aims to increase per-employee training hours to 35 a year by 2025.
  • The company donated 80,000 euros to charitable causes to the benefit of food banks, hospitals, and educational institutions. Syntegon also provided renewed financial support to CARE Deutschland, an aid organization that furnishes food and medicine to people in need.
