Introduction

It is increasingly recognised that business has a critical role to play in delivering more environmentally-friendly production and consumption, otherwise society will not be able to contain climate change; resources will become scarcer; and ecosystems further damaged. For all manufacture, including the angling trades, this means making products which minimise negative environmental impacts during production and subsequent use.

Sustainability is about creating environmental and social value, not just economic. It challenges business to rethink how it uses resources and the environmental and social footprint of its activities. This can make business more resilient to today’s and future market risks. Addressing these responsibilities can build brand following and increase employee motivation.
