5 Pillars of Sustainability Achievement
ABD's Five Pillars of Sustainability
The industry's most advanced and cries havoc verification laboratory guarantees that our diamonds have 99% accuracy in their provenance, which means we can rest assured knowing they were ethically sourced.
ABD who handle or produce diamonds must meet the most stringent social and environmental requirements in order to provide maximum protection for workers, communities around them as well as their environment.
our current footprint has been 25% offset by installing renewable solar panels which will eventually decrease emissions from power plants, air conditioners and other technologies. This is just one step in an effort towards total net-zero sustainability!
We are committed to creating a world with less harm, and we're working towards Net Zero or Positive impacts across all production categories. We will always do our best not only for people and planet, but also nature too!
We buy carbon credits to offset your emissions or meet emission reduction targets. As the world moves towards sustainable development, carbon credits are an important tool that can help achieve emissions reduction targets. The purchase of these environmental goods offers additional value in fulfilling sustainability commitments and protecting nature's beauty for future generations
The Journey to Certification
Leading the way in transparency
Our journey toward sustainability certification began in January 2022, when ABD Lab Grown Diamonds assembled an internal sustainability task-force, spanning all areas of our business, including Operations, Engineering, Supply Chain, Sales, Marketing, and Human Resources. Guided by our newly adopted Corporate Social Responsibility policy - which reflects our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals - the task-force set out to establish social and environmental best practices across our organization. In doing so, we aimed to not only meet, but exceed the standards required for certification.
After months of hard work, we are proud to say that we have achieved our goal and are now certified as a sustainable company. This certification is a testament to the dedication of our team and the strength of our commitment to sustainability. As we move forward, we will continue to work toward minimizing our environmental impact and maximizing our social impact, in line with our goal of creating a better world for all.
