The jewellery industry depends on precious minerals that need to be heavily processed to become the shiny materials and objects we know.
In 2018 the mining of gold alone emitted 126 million tonnes of CO2, which is roughly 16% Germany’s total emissions. This statistic is for a single year, so imagine the accumulated emissions over decades and centuries. Join Danielle Keller Aviram to learn what jewellers can do to achieve carbon neutrality and address the carbon that results from the industry.
