Sustainability is the heart and soul of our transformation in Sintesa Group. It aligns with our business fundamental principle of People, Planet, and Prosperity, and it is our vision to contribute to the benefit of the society. We see sustainability not merely as action on corporate responsibility but rather as a strategic imperative; shifting focus from business efficiency alone towards innovation that creates sustainable value.
To ensure our contribution to sustainable operations and investments, Sintesa Group underwent a significant transformation by embracing the vision of Sustainable Excellence since 2019. The pandemic further compelled us to take swift action on our strategic sustainability commitments, expanding them in 2020.
Against this backdrop, we developed our own SDGs Roadmap called “Sintesa for the Earth”. It is our company’s solid commitment in paving the way to contribute to impact investing as well as operational impact. Sintesa for The Earth serves as our compass in implementing sustainable values into our business models and value chains
We incorporated sustainability principles to expand our business portfolio towards the lens of sustainable investment, through our business model: Sintesa Energy, Sintesa Health Sintesa Eco-Tourism as well as contributing to operation impact through our subsidiaries.
SDGs are the catalyst of our transformation. As sustainability is a concept that can be attributed to any action, process, or business line, it has the potential to decrease costs and business risks, which are crucial in ensuring that the family business can sustain, stay resilient and agile.
