Driving sustainability through environment stewardship
Symphony has a long history of environment stewardship. Our growth is guided by the core belief of doing right for the business by doing right for people and our planet. Over the years, we have been embracing the challenge of developing energy-efficient products while reducing our environmental footprint. This is important to us as we believe innovation is key to a sustainable future for our planet. As a part of its CSR initiatives and commitment towards sustainability, Symphony Limited took up an urban landscape project to establish Symphony Forest Park. With the ultimate aim to revamp an abandoned patch of land ranging 11,000 square meters, Symphony rejuvenated the area to develop a Forest Park, that contains more than 250 plant species, 30,000 tree saplings, numerous species of exotic birds, and a resuscitated lake with aquatic species. As a company, Symphony is always devoted to giving back to the environment, which is a small step towards a cleaner, better future.
At Symphony, we continually strive to improve our operations and minimize our impact on the environment. A commitment to sustainability requires across-the-board efforts. We pursue new ways to reduce emissions and improve energy management through conservation, and energy-efficient product design.
Designing air coolers keeping the planet in mind
With the growing demand for energy, its increasing cost, and the corresponding impact on the environment, every new generation of Symphony air coolers offers greater benefits to customers and the environment.

The Centre's goal is to foster innovation by organizing conferences on innovations and disseminating information about innovative ideas from across the country and around the world. We conduct seminars, panel discussions, and symposia each year with leading academicians, industrialists, and innovation practitioners in pursuit of this objective.
