As a jewelry factory deeply committed to environmental responsibility, Salamander Jewelry recognizes the significance of our carbon footprint in shaping the planet's future. Our carbon footprint unveils the total greenhouse gas emissions, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2), generated through our operations, both directly and indirectly impacting the environment. This crucial metric serves as a pivotal gauge of our factory's environmental impact, particularly concerning global warming and climate change.
Understanding Our Carbon Footprint Score
At Salamander Jewelry we are committed to sustainability and transparency. We believe that every choice you make as a consumer can have a positive impact on the environment.
That's why we provide a Carbon Footprint Score for each of our jewelry products, giving you valuable information about the environmental impact of your purchase.
Our Carbon Footprint Score is calculated based on a careful assessment of the entire life cycle of each jewelry piece. Here's how we determine it:
1. Raw Material Extraction and Processing:
We consider the emissions associated with obtaining the raw materials used in our jewelry, such as metals and gemstones.
This includes energy used during extraction and transportation of these materials to our manufacturing facilities.
2. Manufacturing and Production: We account for the emissions generated during the manufacturing process.
This includes energy-related emissions from electricity and fuel consumption, process-related emissions from chemical reactions and other manufacturing activities, as well as emissions from waste generation and treatment.
3. Calculating the Score:
To arrive at the Carbon Footprint Score for each jewelry piece, we add up the total emissions from both the "Raw Material Extraction and Processing" stage and the "Manufacturing and Production" stage.
This sum represents the overall emissions associated with producing one jewelry piece which is the Score you see at each product page.
