Our goal at Riverworks is to be innovative and create fly fishing gear that is of unprecedented quality. While doing this we want to remain socially and environmentally aware.
Every product is driven by innovation and utilises cutting edge technology, design and production, to create incomparable comfort, performance, and durability. Our emphasis on social and environmental awareness requires that each stage of our product lifecycle be analysed from the design phase, through to production, and eventually product disposal after years of use.
When considering new products, we put a lot of time into evaluating the the recyclability and potential impact of each material required. We also take an in depth look at our supply chains to ensure that each supplier meets our sustainability requirements.
A critical requirement is that we reduce the amount of waste that gets sent to landfills and where possible, maximise the amount of degradable and recyclable materials used in our packaging and the products themselves.
Our production and sustainability philosophy can be summarized as:
We strive to achieve end to end recyclability, where our products and packaging are sourced from recycled materials and can be 100% recycled at the end of their Riverworks life.
We try to use processes that are as gentle on the environment as possible and that minimise consumption of water, chemicals and energy. This includes using suppliers who meet these requirements also.
We make products that last longer. This is better and more affordable for our customers who do not need to replace items as often, and also results in less waste in our landfills so is better for our environment.
We put a significant amount of time into our product design to ensure we have well thought out patterns and construction to minimise raw material wastage.
Social responsibility comes above profits.
