Welcome to International Synergies Limited

World Leaders in Industrial Symbiosis 

We have extensive expertise in applying proven Industrial Symbiosis methodology, tools and techniques to support both the private and public sector to:

  • Improve competitiveness;
  • Increase resource productivity;
  • Accelerate the transition towards a circular economy.

Since 2005 we have built an international reputation and robust evidence base to show that Industrial Symbiosis delivers economic growth and job creation whilst reducing pollution and raw material use. 

Our work has directly influenced policy at local, national and international level.  Most recently the European Commission called for Europe-wide implementation of industrial symbiosis networks, modelled on our award winning programme, NISP (National Industrial Symbiosis Programme) which it acknowledges as 'an innovative means to achieve resource efficiency' in its flagship 2020 initiative, 'Roadmap to a Resource Efficient Europe.'

Based on our experience working across five continents since 2005 we provide the tools and  expertise for public authorities who want to establish funded industrial symbiosis platforms in their regions.  

Equally we consult with private sector businesses to help them apply the principles of industrial symbiosis to improve their commercial competitiveness, reduce costs and become more sustainable in the long term.
