Our Environmental Protection Policy guides us in managing the consumption of resources and reducing the environmental impact stemming from our daily operations.
Throughout the process of goldsmithing, we strive to minimise the use of resources and environmental impact during the production process, and carry forward traditional craftsmanship with a sustainable approach. This allows crafts to not only embody the blessings of longevity and good fortune, but also highlight the significance of protecting precious natural resources and promoting recycling. In addition, various environmentally friendly practices are also used during the production process:
Thinner is used during the waxing process. In order to reduce the damage and pollution caused by harmful substances to the human body and the environment, the production hub in Wuhan has this financial year developed relatively harmless organic solvents to replace thinner. At present, the production hub in Wuhan has fully adopted harmless organic solvents; we also plan to replicate the project at other production hubs.
We take a focused approach in combating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions through energy conservation initiatives at our production hubs and Point of Sales (“POS”), as most of our GHG emissions come from electricity consumption at our production hubs and POS.
Our air emissions are mainly generated from our jewellery production process, which primarily comprises moulding, ultrasonic cleaning and hard gold electroforming. Air emissions generated include NOx, SOx, VOCs, dust and acidic gases.
Our jewellery production processes involve the consumption of water for moulding, hard gold electroforming, and gold plating. The production process requires the use of chemical substances containing slight traces of heavy metals and gypsum, which results in the production of acidic, alkaline, and gypsum wastewater discharges.
