We believe that as a company we are responsible for achieving the highest standards of environmental practice and for operating in a sustainable manner. The Farlows Group Ltd  (which owns both the Sportfish and Farlows brands) has recently received Planet Mark Business Certification, an internationally recognised sustainability certification for business acknowledging continuous progress and encouraging action. Measuring our own carbon footprint has been a critical step in reducing our impact on the planet and society.

As a business which is largely dependent on the external natural environment for its continuing commercial success we understand that we have a duty of care for it and for safeguarding its wellbeing for future generations. We are committed to encouraging our suppliers, customers and all business associates and stakeholders to do the same. Additionally, we are proud to support a number of selected charities in whatever ways we can to help the conservation of our fish and rivers, to protect and promote sustainable shooting, biodiversity and the rural community, and to encourage new audiences into the sports we love:

Wild Trout TrustWild Trout Trust

Inspiring and helping everyone to protect wild trout and their habitat

WTT is a conservation charity working across the UK and Ireland to help anyone interested in making a better world for our rivers, lakes and their wildlife, including wild trout. Flourishing wild trout populations are a sign of the health of our waterways and the land around them. WTT experts work with landowners, local communities, fishing clubs, rivers trusts and government agencies providing practical advice and hands-on habitat improvement projects. Their team spends over 1000 days a year on or in rivers, using that experience to highlight issues like pollution and abstraction directly with governments and regulators and to support partners in their lobbying and campaigning.

Atlantic Salmon TrustAtlantic Salmon Trust

Putting wild salmon first

The wild salmon population is in drastic decline. In the mid 1980s, there were between 8 and 10 million salmon leaping around the Atlantic. That number has now plummeted to between 2 and 3 million, revealing a dramatic population free-fall that shows no signs of levelling out. So much so, that the wild Atlantic salmon could become an endangered species in 10 years’ time, disappearing from our seas and rivers altogether in just 20 or 30 years. This is a warning we simply cannot ignore. The Atlantic Salmon Trust exists solely for the protection of wild salmon and sea trout. Their aim is to create a positive future for these at-risk species; using scientific research to understand their decline, and using the generous donations from their supporters to put evidence-based solutions into practice.

Angling TrustAngling Trust

Help protect fish, fishing and the environment

A not for profit organisation, representing anglers, fighting for fish, fishing and the environment. They are recognised by the Government as the National Governing Body for angling in England and partner with Visit Wales and NRW to promote Fishing in Wales. They are a member-based organisation made up of anglers of all disciplines providing a united front to represent, grow and protect the sport. Funds raised not only help protect the waterways we fish in and the fish which live within them, they are also invested in participation initiatives to introduce more people to fishing.

Game & Wildlife Conservation TrustGame & Wildlife Conservation Trust


GWCT is a UK charity that uses science to promote game and wildlife management as an essential part of nature conservation. They develop scientifically researched game and wildlife management techniques and work with conservationists, farmers and landowners, as well as offering an on-site advisory service so that our countryside and its wildlife are enhanced for the public benefit. They also work to influence government policy with sound science that creates progressive and effective policies.

South East Rivers TrustSouth East Rivers Trust


The South East Rivers Trust focuses on restoring rivers, catchment planning, connecting communities, education, plus water and land stewardship. It includes the River Wandle, one of the few chalkstreams that flow through London, which is one of the reasons we have chosen to support them.
