PROTECTING & RESTORING NATURAL ECOSYSTEMS

Climate action

The climate crisis is considered the biggest challenge facing today’s and future generations. However, it is not too late to act. At BRUNA, we are committed to doing our part, and we do so by achieving climate neutrality.

We measure, reduce, and, as a last resort, offset greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in line with the global objectives of the Paris Agreement, as certified by Climate Neutral since 2020.

We strive to reduce our GHG emissions as much as possible, for example by increasing the use of recycled materials, promoting responsible consumption, and improving logistics efficiency. However, we know that generating a residual amount of emissions is, unfortunately, unavoidable.

We compensate for all unavoidable emissions by purchasing Carbon Credits. With this purchase, we support projects that use nature to remove carbon emissions from our atmosphere and fund renewable energy technologies around the world.

OUR CLIMATE ACTION INVESTMENTS

In 2022, we invested over € 40,000 in carbon offsetting projects around the world:

Conscious materials

Natural resources are finite. But not all materials are created equal. It is possible to protect the environment and contribute to equitable supply chains if we carefully choose conscious materials starting from the design phase of our jewels.

For us, “conscious materials” are low-impact materials from responsible suppliers that adhere to our social and environmental standards, in line with our Code of Conduct for Business Partners and Materials Standard.

We believe in maximizing the use of resources that are already available. This is achieved, for example, by introducing recycled paper in our shipping boxes, and by adopting 100% recycled gold and sterling silver for our jewels.

We know, however, that gold mining represents an important source of livelihood for millions of workers around the world, often trapped in a poverty cycle. It is for this reason that, moving forward, we will adopt measures to support artisanal gold mining communities.

Biodiversity conservation

Biodiversity is critical to supporting life on Earth. For this reason, we pay careful attention to the impact of our supply chains on terrestrial and marine ecosystems, and are conscious of the interrelations between planet, people and animals.

Knowing that our beautiful jewels depend on precious natural resources, since 2019, we have donated over € 200,000 to non-profit organizations, prioritizing those working towards conservation & restoration, resilient communities, and just economies.

Since 2021, we are proud partners of the Jane Goodall Institute Austria, a global non-profit organization founded by the inspiring Dr. Jane Goodall with the goal of protecting chimpanzees and other primates through holistic species conservation. 

In 2022 alone, we raised over € 53,000 to help protect the last wild chimpanzees, preserve their habitats, and strengthen local communities; as well as support their holistic reforestation and beekeeping project in Western Uganda.

“What’s really important is to give people hope (...).

So how to give people hope? Explain to them that they as individuals matter, that what they do each day has some impact on the planet and they can choose what sort of impact to make.”
