POMELLATO MANIFESTO ON SUSTAINABILITY


Pomellato creates unconventional and colorful jewelry produced in ways that respect the work of men and women and promote and safeguard craftsmanship while using precious and innovative materials sourced sustainably. Pomellato has particularly defined a series of flagship actions to steer its sustainable commitment in the years to come.

1. RESPECT THE WORK OF MEN AND WOMEN


Pomellato aims at being the best company to work for and the best partner to work with. The low labour turnover and the strong employee attachment to the company are the result of the Company’s serious approach and work ethic, equally shared by the Managers and Employees.
Delivering joy and well-being is the n.1 priority as an employer towards its employees. Pomellato is proud to implement a global well-being project while promoting a healthier work-life balance for its employees.


«Casa Pomellato» will also become a place for socializing, developing new ideas and fostering culture, the Pomellato Brand Lounge has just been inaugurated in its headquarters, a polymorphic work space which doubles as a venue for regular animations and workshops on well-being and alternative work dynamics.


2. EMPOWER WOMEN


Empowering women will be our priority, and we will continuously work to improve their social condition and quality of life. Pomellato will encourage their education, development and growth both in the professional and social environment. The partnership with the Italian association “Valore D” will promote innovative business models and fight against any gender stereotypes.


Indeed, the association “Valore D” provides manager women with the skills and know-how needed for their professional growth, offering them a new cultural model that involves their full participation in economic and social life. Pomellato will promote actions to support women in accessing the labour field and sponsors community charity projects, notably for victims of domestic violence.

3.PROMOTE AND SAFEGUARD CRAFTSMANSHIP


Pomellato creations are crafted using the lost-wax casting technique – utilized as far back as Ancient Egypt – along with highly advanced machines. In combining ancient tradition and innovation, Pomellato jewels express an authentic artisanal touch that contributes to transforming each creation into a truly unique masterpiece of preciousness. Goldsmiths at Pomellato are the masters of precision, crafting each jewel from start to finish with great concentration and inspiration. Cutting stones to form new designs and reinventing details derived from the high jewellery world in a contemporary way are essential parts of the Pomellato DNA.

Pomellato is inspired and motivated to become a Reference Point when it comes to the safeguard of the cultural and historical heritage of jewellery making. For 50 years Pomellato has been working with very highly skilled and loyal artisans.

Pomellato feels the strong commitment and responsibility to become the Patron of the goldsmith tradition and firmly believes that Italy is the Home of the Goldsmith “Genius”. Therefore, to preserve this cultural and historical heritage, Pomellato is ready to embrace ambitious challenges to enhance the unique skills and future potential of the artisans, encouraging new vocations and developing a mature knowledge thanks to in-depth education programs.

The goal is to make all inside knowledge available, from the designers to the goldsmiths, to build on education programs with the partnership of a Milanese school, Galdus Goldsmith Academy. This professional training program will safeguard its Italian craftsmanship while supporting young talents assuring the transfer of its savoir-faire to future generations


4. CREATE UNCONVENTIONAL AND COLORFUL JEWELRY WITH PRECIOUS AND INNOVATIVE MATERIALS SOURCED SUSTAINABLY


Ethical sourcing of raw material is an obligation. 100% responsible gold sourcing has been achieved in 2018. Pomellato is actively working to build a traceable and transparent sourcing for diamonds through the collaboration with diamonds suppliers thanks to the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) and is also developing an alliance with suppliers to investigate colored stones’ traceability.


5. REINFORCE POMELLATO SUSTAINABILITY LEADERSHIP THROUGH FOCUSED OPERATIONS IMPROVEMENT AND BUILD A UNITED GREEN COMMUNITY


The brand credibility and reputation of Pomellato is grounded in the sustainability values. Pomellato will share and extend the EP&L culture to all its suppliers and apply manufacturing methods based on low energy consumption. Pomellato will also include sustainability goals in its activities and increase involvement and personal engagement through community initiatives and advocacy.5
