sustainability for people, planet & profit
At Riwal, we are constantly looking for innovative and sustainable solutions, in which economic, environmental and social interests are in balance with respect to people, planet and profit. The choices are communicated in a fair and transparent manner to all stakeholders.
Our own employees are our most important resource, and so we try to operate our business to ensure their health and safety and to provide them with career development opportunities. We comply with all relevant laws with respect to non-discrimination and transparency. But the same commitment we make to our employees extends to all of our other stakeholders as well – our business partners, our customers, and our suppliers in the communities in which we work.
Riwal has always demonstrated a very firm commitment to society and the local community, primarily through sponsorships. In addition to the promotional value of our engagement, Riwal finds it important, as a good corporate citizen, to strengthen the local connections through sports and culture, such as our sponsorship of the Alpe d’HuZes to support the fight against cancer.
We know that the resources on our planet are limited, and so we are working in many ways to reduce our own environmental footprint to a minimum. We do whatever we can to reduce our energy consumption and our waste, recycling as much as we possibly can, and making conscious choices for products and processes that are good for our planet.
Sustainability is clearly important for the planet, but it is also very important for our business. And we firmly believe it gives us and our customers a competitive advantage. For example, when we can provide low-emissions, low-noise electric-powered solutions, hybrid machines with lower CO2 footprints, and newer, more energy efficient equipment, we are delivering added value to our customers.
Sustainability is also about long-term continuity. If we do not operate our business “sustainably”, we will not be around in the future to offer our customers the safe and efficient solutions they rely on us for. So we are constantly assessing our own processes and constantly looking at how to improve them. An important element of that process is The Riwal Way, which we’ve implemented to deliver consistently high quality to all of our customers anywhere in the world.
The Riwal Way delivers advantages in quality and reliability to our customers, and it also is a business methodology designed to ensure our own business success, profitability, and our future. Business sustainability – so that we can continue to deliver the best customer experience in the industry to our partners for many years to come.
At Riwal, we believe in maintaining the highest standards for quality, safety, and sustainability. We are proud to possess the following certifications that reflect the high bar that we set for our organization.
