Recycling Programs

Recycling Programs

In global solidarity, our sites in 23 countries, with 50,000+ employees, have made an impact by recycling. From paper to plastic to ink, SYKES not only ensures in-house recycling, but encourages employees to bring their own recyclable products from home.

SYKES Enercon


In SYKES Philippines, the Energy Conservation Program (ENERCON) serves as a top-to-bottom approach to conserving energy at the site. Through education, improved equipment and enhanced work conditions, every employee plays an integral role in SYKES’ responsibility to save energy and reduce costs.

Environmental Facts
