At Regal Jewelry, we prioritize the use of sustainable materials and manufacturing techniques. Our company has received the RJC CoP Certification to properly use recycled precious metals in our facility. As such, we offer the option of using Recycled Gold and Recycled Silver for our customers. By doing so, we actively contribute to reducing the use of newly mined materials, thereby conserving natural resources.
To lessen our environmental impact, In the past, we have implemented an efficient air filtration system, in-house wastewater management systems, and comprehensive recycling programs for general waste. However, with the goal to reach higher levels of sustainability, in 2022 Regal Jewelry started measuring its Corporate Carbon Footprint. With these tangible measurements, we are dedicated to minimizing our environmental footprint through short-term and long-term projects. Some examples of the projects that we have already started executing are the mangrove reforestation project in a 16,000 sqm sized land, changing our machine parts to more energy efficient components, and implementing solar panels in our factory for renewable energy.
Upholding ethical practices is a fundamental aspect of our production process and employment policies. We align our operations with the Responsible Jewelry Council's (RJC) Code of Practices (CoP) to ensure transparent and conflict-free supply chains for both natural and synthetic stones and metals. By adhering to these standards, our customers can trace the origins of our materials and have peace of mind, knowing that human rights are upheld throughout our practice.
