RiverSafe, a cybersecurity, data operations and DevOps professional services provider, has announced a strategic partnership with sustainability experts, EARTH 51.

The collaboration is aimed at developing a sustainability strategy for RiverSafe, marking the firm's commitment to lead the cybersecurity industry into the next era of transformation while maintaining an ethical and responsible approach.

EARTH 51, known for integrating sustainability into the very DNA of organisations, will aid RiverSafe in striking a perfect balance between commercial gain and environmental stewardship.

Incorporated into a broader transformation plan, this partnership will steer RiverSafe towards becoming one of the first cybersecurity firms globally to envelop sustainability into its central business functions.

Oseloka Obiora, CTO at RiverSafe, expressed the company’s enthusiasm about the new collaboration. He said, "The Cybersecurity industry is renowned for its innovation & cutting-edge technology, and we are proud to be playing a role in shaping its future."

"Our vision at RiverSafe is clear – to lead this industry into the next decade of security transformation and we are excited to partner with EARTH 51 and gain expert advice to enable us to do so in a way that is also sustainable.”

Obiora further emphasised RiverSafe’s holistic attitude towards issues facing the world. He said, "We pride ourselves on being an organisation that does not simply look after ourselves and our profits but also one that uses our platform to prioritise and advocate for important issues that need addressing."

"We are looking forward to the road ahead and what our new partnership will bring as we evolve our sustainability strategy."

Akhil Handa, CEO of EARTH 51, shared his delight on partnering with RiverSafe. He stated, "We are delighted to partner with RiverSafe to help develop their sustainability strategy, putting in place proactive policies and actions to reduce emissions."

"The private sector as a whole should be held more accountable for their climate actions and companies like RiverSafe, who are embracing sustainability at the heart of their organisation, set a shining example for the wider industry."

The initiative builds on RiverSafe’s dedication to social responsibility, exemplified by their recent association with the Victor Moore Foundation. The Nigerian-based charity focuses on providing education access and opportunities to children. This partnership is yet another testament to RiverSafe's commitment to making a lasting and positive impact on the global community.
