Environmental Policy

At Kit Heath we are committed to enriching lives, through our Ethical Policy, by promoting responsible, ethical, human rights, social and environmental practices throughout our business, our employees and our business partners, which includes our complete supply chain for all our products.

We comply with UK, EU and US legislation, and fully support the sentiments and applicable codes of practice relating to the International Labour Organisation Conventions, the Responsible Jewellery Council, the Dangerous Substances and Preparations Regulations (Nickel) and the Kimberley Process, with zero tolerance of conflict products.

We aim to ensure compliance with all relevant environmental legislation and regulations and take action to continuously review and improve our environmental performance.

All suppliers are required to comply with our Ethical Sourcing framework which as a minimum insists that the working conditions are safe and hygienic, employment is freely chosen and living wages are paid, that child labour shall not be used and no harsh or inhumane treatment is allowed. 

We aim to use resources wisely by reducing resource use and reusing or recycling materials wherever possible.  From the office paper, cardboard and scrap metal we send to recycle right through to products that we source for our jewellery.

We aim to implement on a daily basis throughout our operations by:

  • Training ensuring all our employees understand the sustainability impacts of their own jobs. We are always finding ways and means to make our mark on the world a positive one rather than a negative one.
  • Informing all suppliers, contractors and sub-contractors of the requirement to comply with this policy when providing goods and services.
  • Reviewing sustainability issues, on a regular basis, at the highest level within the organisation.
  • Being open to suggestions and recommendations from all our customers.
