Today, the RV Industry Association launched a new page on RVIA.org highlighting the existing sustainability, diversity, safety, and community activities of our member companies. The new section of the site, titled “Our Impact”, outlines the RV industry’s ongoing commitment to being responsible members of the outdoor community.
“Cultivating and sustaining a strong and resilient RV industry requires continued investment in programs and policies that reflect our growing and diverse consumer base,” said Craig Kirby, President & CEO, RV Industry Association. “Launching this new section on RV Industry Association's website provides a forum for our members and the industry to connect and make a positive change for our environment and communities across the country."
The RV Industry’s Association’s member efforts are divided into three focus areas:
Sustainability: Our country’s iconic lands are central to the RVing tradition—we must protect them for the enjoyment of future generations. That’s why the RV industry has partnered with local, state, and federal agencies on projects and policies that support America’s public lands and promote responsible visitor practices. Our industry is committed to sustainability, working toward net-zero emissions for RVs, sourcing environmentally friendly materials, and promoting circular supply chains.
Inclusion: We all need nature. The outdoors has proven health benefits, including relieving anxiety, stress, and depression. Go RVing and the RV industry strongly emphasize that adventure and RVing are for everyone. For many years, the industry has through our Go RVing advertising and promotion, worked towards encouraging diverse participation and to promote access for all.
Community: Our people define us. And the RV industry invests in our workforce and communities to support those who have helped make RVing such an iconic part of our country's history. Together, we are continually working towards improving worker safety and providing a rewarding career across all segments of the industry. Our brands give back to their communities through volunteering and investment, helping to retain a strong workforce and recruit the next group of innovators into the RV Industry.
Kirby added, "While we recognize there is always more work to do, we feel that by highlighting positive industry initiatives, we will encourage further awareness, investment and improvement in these key areas. The RV industry Association and our members are committed to promoting exploration and outdoor adventure, while encouraging our customers to recreate responsibly."
Moving forward, the association will continue to expand the "Our Impact" section of RVIA.org, and is looking to highlight industry efforts and progress in the areas of sustainability, diversity, safety and community. To be featured, click here to contact us.
