ANABELA CHAN JOAILLERIE SUSTAINABILITY REPORT


ETHICAL SUSTAINABILITY

Our laboratory-grown gemstones are responsibly sourced without the untraceable provenance and destructive use of land mining.  Grown in a science laboratory rather than mined from the ground, utilising renewable green energy where possible.
Every creation is carefully and lovingly hand-crafted by skilled artisans at the atelier, a truly slow and considered process honouring centuries-old craftsmanship with new innovative ideas. Anabela also works with individual artisans personally around the world for special projects.
Our natural gemstones are a part of our Atelier Future Fully Traceable & Ethical colour gemstone collection via the Moyo Gems Project using blockchain technology, with every stone traced back to the individual miner her/himself where they also receive 90-95% of the export price of each stone, with proceeds re-invested back into local communities to fund education, social and community infrastructure support powered by the international non-profit organisation Pact and the GIA.


 



ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

Our Flagship London Boutique and Atelier are operated on 100% renewable energy.
Our domestic & international shipping packaging is plastic free and 100% recyclable & biodegradable where possible. We contribute to carbon negative off-set with every online purchase. In partnership with the Sea-trees project we plant 100 Mangrove SeaTrees in the Ocean via The SeaTrees Project with every purchase from the Mermaid's Tale Collection, which equates to capturing 100 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere; as well as creating critical habitat for marine life and providing sustainable employment for local communities.


SOCIAL SUSTAINABILITY

Giving back is central to what we do - from supporting up to 10 individual charities worldwide every year since year 1 of establishing Anabela Chan Joaillerie in 2014, to educational projects for the future via talks, workshops and public initiatives.
In January to June 2020 as the pandemic began to unfold, we proudly raised over $88,000 for 10 charities worldwide ranging from emergency Covid-19 relief funds to other local and global causes ranging from The Trussell Trust food bank, Age U.K. and NHS charities; to Mission Oxygen India, The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and NAACP Legal Defence and Educational Fund.
In 2020-2021, Anabela became a Visiting Lecturer at the Royal College of Art. She has given talks, podcasts and ran workshops from Innovation RCA to the GIA, at Heatherwick Studio to Moda Métier and at a local London girls school for children age 6-13. In 2022 she is also appointed as an Art & Design Ambassador for her former boarding school Roedean, to provide creative career mentorship to girls age 16-18.
In 2020 Anabela Chan also became a partner for the non-profit charity Gem Legacy.
