Sustainability
DAEMS GIOVANNI

Since DAEMS GIOVANNI was founded, we have prided ourselves on maintaining the highest ethical, social and environmental standards. We recognise the need for a sustainable and respectful jewellery industry and fully intend to contribute to this through our ongoing efforts.

Timeline

2015 – DAEMS GIOVANNI moves to an even more modern production facility, designed to offer employees optimal working conditions in terms of equipment, safety, comfort and well-being.

2016 – To reduce our carbon footprint, we take advantage of our workshop’s large, well-oriented roof to install solar panels.

2017 – We replace all our office chairs with ergonomic models that allow each employee to find the optimal working position, and prevent uncomfortable and tiring postures.

2019 – Petrol and diesel cars in our company car fleet are gradually replaced by electric or hybrid models. In 2019, we also became a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council and began the journey towards RJC certification.

2020 – To further reduce our energy needs and corresponding carbon footprint, we will install a new energy-efficient heating system in our workshop. Daems Giovanni BV has been successfully certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council. You can download our certificate here.

Responsible Jewellery Council

Daems Giovanni BV has been successfully certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council. Adoption and adherence with the RJC’s Code of Practices presents a pathway for Daems Giovanni BV to address sustainability best practices and align with the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. RJC is a gateway to sustainable growth.

Our next goal is certification according to the RJC Chain of Custody (CoC). This ensures even higher standards for the maintenance of and compliance with human rights, working conditions, environmental impact and ethical business practices along the entire supply chain.

Supply chain policy

In striving to maintain the highest ethical standards, we recognise the need for constant vigilance when sourcing raw materials from conflict-affected areas and areas at risk for human rights abuses.

Together with the actors in our supply chains, we engage to identify, mitigate and address any risks that are identified in those supply chains.

Provenance claims

At DAEMS GIOVANNI, we only use ethically-sourced materials that are free from conflict and exploitation. Detailed information about the materials we use, including their traceability, can be requested via email to commitment@daems-giovanni.com.

Local commitment

As a Belgian-based, Belgian-owned company that is a global leader in its field, our roots are very important to us. We are therefore committed to ensuring that our local natural environment and biodiversity are protected and nurtured.

This is why we support Natuurpunt, Belgium’s largest nature conservation organisation. Among their many activities Natuurpunt runs events and educational programs to engage and inform the public, and we are proud to support and promote these: https://www.natuurpunt.be/agenda
