As a modern contract manufacturing company, RiverSide Integrated Solutions (RIS) is dedicated to embracing sustainability. Our commitment to responsible resource management and renewable energy solutions sets us apart as a leading corporate citizen.

We actively seek ways to reduce our environmental impact, promote energy efficiency and foster a waste-reduction, recycling-focused culture.

Join us as we explore four ways we make efforts to shape a greener, more sustainable future.


At RIS, we emphasize waste reduction and responsible disposal practices. Through our diligent efforts, we seek to achieve a net carbon reduction by reusing materials whenever feasible.

Additionally, we endeavor to see recyclable materials find their way to viable markets. There are plenty of ways to minimize waste going to landfills. We embrace recycling whenever possible and adhere to federal, state and local laws and ordinances. In this way, we are able to actively contribute to the circular economy.

Our commitment to ethical waste management is a testament to our dedication to sustainable practices.

At RIS, our investment in new and cutting edge technologies reduces the amount of waste our manufacturing efforts produce. Our selective solder machines produces just 3 tablespoons of waste each time it's run.


RIS is committed to creating sustainable facilities that prioritize environmental well-being. In a recent project at one of our facilities, we transitioned from energy-consuming halide to energy-efficient LED lighting. This switch reduced our energy consumption greatly. Plus, thanks to the brighter, more efficient LEDs, we decreased the number of fixtures required. We plan to implement similar energy-saving initiatives across all our facilities soon.

In another recent project, we replaced consumable paper towels with washable and reusable towels for our cleaning staff. This significantly reduced waste and promoted a cleaner working environment.

RIS finds many ways to give back, both through community outreach and environmental practices. We encourage all of our staff to get involved, and host many different events to help provide the opportunity.


Our commitment to environmental and sustainability efforts extends beyond our corporate operations. We believe in giving back to our community and supporting organizations that positively impact our society. Through our Volunteer & Philanthropy Committee, we actively engage with various charitable organizations. Some include Winona Volunteer Services, Habitat for Humanity, the Winona Humane Society, and the Minnesota Adopt a Highway program.

We encourage our employees to participate and make a difference in the community. To facilitate this, we provide all staff with paid Volunteer Time Off. This allows them to volunteer their time during work hours at an organization of their choice.

Our commitment to community outreach aligns with our broader mission of creating a better future for the communities we serve.


At RIS, we take great pride in being a positive example of environmental and sustainability actions in the corporate landscape. We’re dedicated to positively impacting our planet. This is reflected in our commitment to conserving resources, adopting renewable energy solutions and implementing waste reduction strategies. Moreover, we extend this commitment to our community by engaging with charitable organizations and supporting causes that uplift society.

Our ongoing initiatives and forthcoming projects underscore our resolve to implement responsible business practices. We hope that our example can inspire others toward a greener, more sustainable future.
