Responsibility is much more
than social, as Sustainability is
much more than ecology.
At the core of our ethos at Walking Tree lies a commitment to responsible practices. Whether it’s in the way we source our products, preserve our planet or treat our team, we are committed to a sustainable way of functioning. With these ethical practices, we remain at the forefront of the positive change we would like to see in the jewellery industry.
" We as a species don't have an alternative. We have to go green, we have only one planet "
Guided by three pillars towards our social and sustainability responsibilities
Sustainable practices are more than just ecological mindfulness. They reflect in every interaction, thought and decision. We are mindful of our sustainable principles and practice them in three major aspects of our business. These are our products, our planet and our people.
At Walking Tree, we work with sustainably sourced gems, metals and minerals to express meaning through jewellery.
Our natural diamonds are sourced responsibly, and follows the Kimberly process. These diamonds are RJC and DTC-BPP certified, audited by independent authorities and best-practice-principle compliant.
For a Brighter Future Together
When it comes to manufacturing processes, we are transitioning rapidly to carbon neutrality and energy efficiency, with several of our facilities around the world moving to clean and renewable energy. We follow fair practices including managing waste, recycling water and using solar energy. We are also working towards using recycled gold and metals to craft our jewels.
Every diamond we use is sourced responsibly, ensuring that it is free from conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CHARAs) and is certified by the highest authorities. Every facet of our product packaging too is carefully considered - with boxes that are made to last.
Creating Space for Happiness
At Walking Tree, we follow an employee-led work culture, putting our people and their welfare high on our priority list.
We focus on policies that benefit employees, encourage diversity and support inclusivity. We believe in open communication, nurturing talent, producing leaders and provide consistent training and development to help employees reach their full potential.
A platform to create meaningful human connections in the work space
Walking Tree believes in developing stronger narratives led by human emotion and sensitivities within our brands and amongst our people. A reason why we have incubated and supported the Untitled initiative. Untitled is a space to reconnect to our own hearts and listen to our voices beyond our roles and responsibilities in the real world.
We helped build this platform to offer experiences that allow all those associated with our brand to pause for reflection, engage in meaningful conversations and learn various tools that help gain a deeper insight into humans as emotional beings.
When we really look beneath our layers, we are the passions we’ve forgotten, the failures we’ve overcome, the feelings we’ve pushed away and the lessons we’ve learnt from. At Untitled, we take a moment to pause and remember who we really are, because in that lies our power to connect, explore, create and transform.
Accredited by the Highest Authorities
Our sustainable supply chain comprises many prominent certifications that are the benchmark for quality and responsibility.
