DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
ELI-O is committed to several UN Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 4 that helps ensure a quality education for all, Goal 5, which helps empower women and girls, and Goal 6, which promotes sustainable economic growth and decent work for all.
ELI-O ensures that all of their suppliers have strict codes of conduct and that they provide safe working conditions for their employees. They also has policies in place to ensure that any models they work with are cared for and protected during their work with the brand.
CIRCULAR ECONOMY, SUPPLY CHAIN INTEGRITY AND RESPONSIBLE SOURCING
ELI-O’s sustainability strategy is based on the lifetime quality of the pieces, and the brand’s commitment to environmental care through educating consumers on the use of recycled gold and silver. The brand’s pieces are meant to be kept for life, and passed along through generations. Along with recycled gold, ELI-O uses conflict-free stones and only makes pieces with precious materials to ensure they last. More than 60% of the raw materials the pieces are made of are traced.
The brand is taking steps to reduce the amount of fuel used through production, and all of their suppliers and subcontractors are very near to their Geneva studio. The founder takes public transit to pick up the pieces from her caster herself.
RESPONSIBLE JEWELLERY COUNCIL, FAIRMINED AND NO DIRT GOLD
All of ELI-O’s suppliers are Fairmined certified, and all of the diamonds have been purchased from legitimate sources not involved in funding conflict. 80 to 99% of the diamonds used in the brand’s pieces are subject to the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme, and the gemstones and semi-precious stones are SCS Responsible Source-certified. All of the brand’s suppliers are members of the Responsible Jewellery Council. No synthetic stones are used in ELI-O pieces.
