What does Origin Green membership mean for Riverview?
“Coming from a farming background and being rooted in the land, sustainability has always been at the core of the Kelleher family and in turn Riverview, but this was never formally documented, as, all along there was no scheme in which to report. Now through the Origin Green initiative we have formalized these activities to show our past track record and to demonstrate our commitment to the future” says D.J Kelleher, Managing Director.
This view makes Riverview a natural fit with Bord Bia’s Origin Green programme and its sustainability charter, which recognises the challenges businesses face in meeting environmental challenges while controlling costs.
“Riverview is at all times committed to driving costs from our business, while at the same time ensuring our commitment to sustainability” says D.J Kelleher,
Under a five-year plan submitted as part of the Origin Green membership process, Riverview has set targets for energy use, waste, transport emissions, water, and social responsibility.
