At SYNTHEON, we believe that true sustainability – what we call engineered sustainability – is much more comprehensive than product certifications and eco-friendly materials.
That's why we came up with our own rules for sustainability. They are our keystone - the impetus behind everything we do.
1. Companies that do not engineer products with common sense for the common good are not sustainable.
2. Building methods and products that do not reduce construction time and installation cost are not sustainable.
3. Building methods and products that do not minimize waste are not sustainable.
4. New products that sacrifice simplicity or performance for innovation are not sustainable.
5. New products that do not facilitate the evolution of codes and standards are not sustainable.
6. Products that are not engineered to extend the life of a building are not sustainable.
7. Products that do not deliver enduring high performance every time are not sustainable.
8. Products that are energy efficient but are not installed efficiently are not sustainable.
9. Products that do not give a reasonable return on investment in a reasonable time frame are not sustainable.
10. Engineered sustainability is the synthesis of common sense and innovative building materials and methods for the common good.
