International Synergies (ISL) has pioneered practitioner-informed ICT tools such as the award-winning SYNERGie®, a resource matching platform delivering sustainability and business benefits for companies around the world by enabling identification and advancement of resource reuse opportunities.
SYNERGie® software hosts information for over 100,000 resources from 34,000 organisations across 23 countries on 6 continents; resources and organisations on the platform are growing at 10% per year. Quantified impacts in England alone include 42 million tonnes carbon avoided whilst achieving over £1 billion cost savings and, £1 billion revenue generation. The advisor function running in the background accesses a library of past successes to present the user with automatic, evidence-based solutions without having to search manually.
The most successful tool of its type
SYNERGie® is the most successful tool of its type in the world, deriving from its innovative design by leading resource efficiency experts, and has been selected by DG Grow in 2019 to be the ICT tool for the new Europe-wide CircLean Industrial Symbiosis Network. SYNERGie® has been used by many industry sectors and facilitators to advance resource efficiency, bringing cost savings, reducing supply risks and improving environmental sustainability.
Its primary function is to overcome information barriers: the lack of knowledge within one company or sector about opportunities within another company or sector to move the (waste) resource up the value chain and keep it in productive use for longer. A categorisation system for non-material resources is included to enable the reuse of equipment and other non-waste assets.
Variants of SYNERGie® are now being used for sector specific applications, e.g. construction and utilities.
