Sustainability

Mejuri is proud that we’ve been able to reduce our carbon intensity through the use of recycled gold and silver. By sourcing 95% of our gold and 92% of our silver from recycled sources, Mejuri produces less greenhouse gas emissions in our creation process. 

To take this forward to the next step, Mejuri is also a proud Founding Partner and the exclusive jewelry sector partner of Regeneration Enterprises. Regeneration is a revolutionary new start-up that uses the re-mining and processing of waste from legacy mine sites to support rehabilitation activities and restore natural environments. Founded by RESOLVE, a Washington DC-based NGO with a proud history of endangered species recovery in the mining space, Regeneration re-mining will have important ecological benefits for our world—all while producing efficiently-mined minerals. 

Through the efforts of Regeneration, we are supporting the repair of habitats and biodiversity while collecting important minerals for use in our products as well as future renewable energy projects. In addition, Regeneration will seek to create and trade biodiversity and carbon credits through the rehabilitation of land and the generation of environmental offsets.

Additionally, Mejuri is acting on areas of opportunity for reducing Scope 1-3 emissions identified by Climate Positive Consulting, prioritizing the purchase of clean electricity and renewable energy credits (RECs), and recently launched a poly bag recycling program.

Traceability refers to the jewelry industry’s ability to track the entire journey of a piece’s creation from beginning to end—this includes identifying responsible sources for precious materials, ensuring that more sustainable processes are used to create and deliver our pieces. From human rights violations to environmental degradation, the fine jewelry industry can take a massive toll on workers, the earth, and economies worldwide. By tracing each step and ensuring safety, fairness, and improved processes, Mejuri can help guarantee a brighter future for the industry and the planet.

Mejuri is also a proud Founding Partner and the exclusive jewelry sector partner of Regeneration Enterprises Legacy mine sites present a problem and an opportunity. With Regeneration Mejuri will be able to obtain minerals in a far more eco-friendly and traceable fashion while helping to clean and restore the environment.

Recycled gold is found in many places, including old, unused, or discarded jewelry pieces and in electronic waste. The more gold we can recycle and inject into the industry, the better the industry—and the planet—will be. There is no difference in quality between recycled and newly-mined gold. With recycled gold, you get the same beautiful shine, with the addition of increased circularity and reduced waste. As a solid element, gold never degrades or loses its integrity, so it looks and feels the same no matter how many times it's recycled. Since 14k gold products make up the majority of our revenue, attaining 95% recycled gold in 2022 represents the largest area for positive impact across our supply chain.

When consumers buy jewelry from designers that practice responsible sourcing and promote traceability, they support and perpetuate the improvement of the industry at large. By investing in pieces that come from more sustainable processes, customers help guarantee that companies like Mejuri can continue to help make the jewelry industry a more responsible one to work in.

Sustainable jewelry is a term given to pieces and providers that encourage responsible processes throughout fine jewelry creation. We believe that the concept of ‘fine jewelry’ goes beyond craftsmanship and style. It’s also about the responsible supply chain that sources our precious materials, and the respectful partnerships that help bring our jewelry to life. Our products are built to last. This inherent longevity not only provides our consumers with more value but also helps increase circularity by reducing waste.

From using conflict-free materials to recycled gold and silver, sustainable jewelry aims to promote a more responsible industry in a healthier environment. Sustainable jewelry also aims to avoid controversial intermediary processes that exploit workers and make parts of the industry dangerous to work in. Using recycled materials and traceable sources uphold Mejuri’s goal of providing sustainable jewelry.

Our trusted partners only use Kimberley Process-compliant diamonds, a system aimed at reducing the flow of conflict rough diamonds.This process has promoted a trading environment for member countries that exclusively trade with other Kimberley Process members.

The key ways Mejuri intends to garner the future of sustainable jewelry are through increasing traceability throughout each step of the sourcing, manufacturing, and delivery processes, as well as through regenerative mining.

By increasing traceability, we can encourage a sourcing and trading environment that promotes more responsible processes and practices. The market also faces new strategies to help perpetuate sustainability, such as recycled plastics, and environmentally-friendly packaging techniques.

Established in 2005, the RJC is a non-profit encouraging responsible practices throughout the jewelry supply chain. The RJC audits companies for compliance that can then become certified as responsible businesses. Audits are performed on company policy, human and labor rights, environmental impact, and product disclosure. The RJC is significant for the fine jewelry industry because it creates a safer, cleaner environment for workers, products, and customers alike.

We only work with suppliers who meet our standards. These include RJC certified suppliers as well as a few smaller suppliers. We work hand in hand with smaller players as they improve their sustainability processes.

A helpful analogy might be sustainable food consumption. People can purchase organic-certified foods, but we know that organic certification is most accessible to major producers. People can also purchase from local family farms that are key parts of the community and grow healthy produce with minimal inputs. Most conscious consumers do a mix of both.

We’re in the process of getting certified with Positive Luxury, which covers a bit broader than the jewelry industry standards but provides a strong framework for luxury companies to operate sustainably, and goes above and beyond the RJC.

In 2023, we launched our new Poly Bag Recycling Program. Bags made out of poly, a material that you can’t recycle at the local municipal level, are the standard method of product transport across the entire jewelry industry. These bags had nowhere to go besides landfills—until now.

Mejuri is assuming the costs of collecting poly bags to be recycled. Soon we’ll have recycling available at retail stores and warehouses in order to keep them out of municipal waste. This is a massive step toward eliminating single-use plastic in our operations, and it’s worth every penny.

We’ve also worked hard to ensure our packaging is fully recyclable. In 2019, we introduced reusable cotton bags, and in 2021, we introduced a ‘reduced packaging’ option for all online purchases. In the future, we plan on featuring FSC certified materials in our packaging.

Both are important. When you’re dealing with a complex, historically opaque supply chain like jewelry, it’s helpful to have multiple intervention points. We have made great progress reducing emissions that we directly control. There’s also a lot we don’t control across the production of our jewelry, and reducing those emissions takes much longer and is much more complicated. Purchasing renewable credits is something we can do in the short term that has real positive and proactive impact by investing in renewable sources of energy. We continue to work with our suppliers to reduce their emissions and improve our processes.

Positive Luxury, through its Butterfly Mark certification program, serves as an independent validator of luxury brands' genuine sustainability credentials and ethical business practices across environmental, social and innovation criteria tailored to the luxury sector.Positive Luxury's assessment framework is tailored specifically to the luxury industry, considering over 150 factors across 75 categories related to environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.The Butterfly Mark is Positive Luxury's certification awarded to luxury brands that meet the highest verified standards across areas like innovation, social responsibility and environmental practices
