Best practices in sustainable production entail the elimination or offsetting of environmental and human health impacts from the industrial system based on two main priorities:
A Sustainability Rated Diamond certified producer understands and works actively to reduce impacts of its own production operation, achieving net zero carbon footprint.
Sustainability Rated Diamonds are tracked through a verified origin traceability process that provides 99.9% accuracy of the origin of each diamond through its entire chain of custody, from producer to point of sale.
Each diamond is certified to adhere to twelve core ethical principles aligned to the strictest internationally recognized norms of business integrity.
Sustainability Rated Diamonds producers are committed to reducing their production carbon footprints through measures such as improved efficiencies in energy and operations. The carbon footprint that remains is then balanced out each year through investments in renewable energy or other climate mitigation initiatives.
Sustainability Rated Diamond producers invest in efforts that not only improve their own operations and supply chains, but also in projects that help communities and protect climate and the environment.
