Responsibly made jewelry is facing an even brighter future
LEADING THE WAY
Since our early days, our goal has been to design high-quality jewelry that is good for the planet and its people. Now, responsibly made jewelry has even brighter days ahead as we open our new crafting facilities in Lamphun, Northern Thailand in March 2017. One of the greenest jewelry crafting facilities ever built, the state-of-the-art premises set new standards for the whole jewelry industry with its ground-breaking sustainable practices.
Having achieved the attractive LEED certificate, the new facilities meets the highest demands regarding CSR and sustainability. The facility is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, and features a number of design aspects that significantly reduce water and energy consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions. This includes 8,500m² of solar panels, which deliver around 14% of the facility’s energy – the equivalent of powering around 700 Thai homes.
Water conservation is increasingly important around the globe, including in Thailand, and our new facility recycles water within the production process to heavily reduce the use of water from the municipal supply. In addition, the toilets are flushed with rainwater when possible, and a nearby lake is used as a fire-fighting water tank.
MODERN WORKING CONDITIONS
Due to the architecture and design of the site, the new production setup is offering some of the best working conditions and most modern production facilities of its kind in Asia. Employing up to 5,000 people, the air conditioning system of the new crafting facility is designed to provide thermal comfort to promote the well-being of employees. The building is equipped with an innovative ventilation system that helps to decrease harmful air contaminants. We also provide free shuttle buses for employees who reside close to the factory and a bicycle park to minimise the impact of greenhouse gas emissions from transportation.
