Rivervale Group Achieves Ethy's 'Verified Sustainability Claims' Accreditation!

As part of our company-wide Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) promise, we applied to collaborate with Ethy to strive for a better future. We were thrilled to have recently become Ethy verified! Ethy is a free tool that is designed to stop cooperative ‘greenwashing’ by creating a space for companies to list their verified actions towards a more sustainable future for the planet.

As of May 2023, we have already achieved 3 ‘ecolabels’ from Ethy. These badges sit on our Ethy profile page to verify our sustainable actions.

Our Current Ecolabels

Our Ethy Ecolabels

EV Charge points

Rivervale takes pride in being eco-conscious. That's why the majority of our company fleet consists of electric vehicles. We have 6 EV charge points available on our premises, ensuring convenient charging options for both our staff and clients. Additionally, for every EV vehicle we sell, we make a commitment to plant a tree in collaboration with eForests, further contributing to our efforts to support the environment. So far we have planted 1,400 trees! We believe in promoting sustainable transportation and taking active steps towards a greener future.

Energy Efficient

Rivervale House is a purpose built 3 story showroom, hosting all areas of the business. The building is built to BREEAM specification, meaning that it is efficient in carbon reduction and the resources were responsibly sourced. This ultimately helped us to achieve the ‘Energy Efficient’ ecolabel.

Gives to charity

A major part of our ESG promise is giving, support and fundraising for charity. Although we operate nationwide, we actively participate in our community by supporting various local charities, including the Love Local Jobs Foundation, Chestnut Tree House and the Rockinghorse Children's Charity.

The Rockinghorse Children's Charity is dedicated to improving the lives of sick children in Sussex by funding vital medical equipment and providing essential support. We have a range of initiatives to support Rockinghorse in 2023, these include a charity golf day, sponsored beach clean and fundraising at the Brighton Marathon.

Sustainable Development Goals

Through verification with Ethy, we have also been credited for demonstrating contribution towards:

  1. No Poverty

  2. Zero hunger

  3. Quality education

  4. Clean water and sanitation

  5. Affordable and clean energy

  6. Industry innovation and infrastructure

  7. Sustainable cities and Communities

  8. Responsible consumption and production

  9. Climate action

  10. Partnerships for the goals

Going forwards

We are excited about the beginning of our venture with Ethy to become a more sustainable company. In the near future, we aim to achieve many more ‘ecolabels’ including: ‘Empowering Employees’ and ‘Fights Plastic Waste’.
