WHO ARE WE?
We verify environmental performance and sustainability claims, and spread awareness of green building success on a global scale.
We support companies on their sustainability goals in numerous ways, from quantifying their success through certification, to providing advisory on the creation of new verification programmes for specific needs, to educating on core products through the delivery of training. We are passionate about our work and are driven by purpose to decarbonise the built environment.
Our approach originates from the passion and care for planet and people.
Launched in 2020 by Tom Saunders and Eleni Polychroniadou, Sintali was born out of the motivation to set up a company that genuinely does good for the world, and brings ethics into business. The founders chose to focus on decarbonising the built environment as a key impact area in the climate crisis. With buildings contributing over a third of all global greenhouse gas emissions, ensuring that green buildings are rolled out in the most simple and scalable way possible is a way to achieve maximum impact.
We aim to catalyse that effort and ensure that these efforts are done in a credible and verified way.
Wondering about the name? Sintali is a combination of two words: sin and tally. Combined, they mean ever accounting. As a company dedicated to transparency and encouragement of progress towards environmental goals, we feel that we must remain accountable to ourselves and those around us.
