World Oceans Day 2022

June 8, 2022

This year, United Nations World Ocean Day highlights Revitalisation: Collective Action for the Ocean. It’s hard not to notice our planet’s declining health and our oceans. The RS team are passionate about protecting our playgrounds so our future generations can enjoy the sport we all love. Here are just some of the things we are doing to join the effort to revitalise our oceans.

  1. Reducing plastic

We are actively removing plastic from our packaging and replacing with healthier, more sustainable options. We work with our suppliers to reduce the plastic waste and implement eco-friendly alternatives to limit our waste and carbon footprint.

  1. Eco-friendly design

The design team at RS are passionate about creating innovative solutions to reduce our carbon footprint. Our RS Aero, RS Zest and RS21 are designed to be stackable so we can ship as little air as possible. Not to mention, the materials used in our plastic range mean they the hulls are 100% recyclable.

  1. Paperless

We are almost 100% paperless! All our manuals, rigging guides, tutorials and support are digital, meaning we save waste every day.

  1. Goal setting

We work with our class associations and partners to create more sustainable events so we can enjoy our sport and prevent further damage to our playground.

  1. RS Electric Boats

It’s hard not to notice our planet’s declining health and our oceans. The team here at RS care deeply about protecting the world’s waterways so that we and future generations can continue to enjoy them. We’re conscious that as a marine business, we have a duty to do everything that we can to prevent further damage to the natural playgrounds that we love so much, and this has been a huge driving force behind the development of RS Electric Boats. As a result, not only have we produced a RIB with the world’s first integrated electric drive, but many of the building materials are sustainable too.
