Our proactive ethical strategy is built on a deep foundation of genuine care for industry and its people.
ROOTED IN RESPONSIBILITY
Securex was founded on principles of diversity, integrity and accountability. We believe economic growth can, and must, be achieved with social and environmental responsibility.
We are a member of the Responsible Diamond Organization, and participate in the Global Compact. By observing best practices in the industry, Securex commits to take sustainability leadership to the next level.
“SECUREX HAS ALWAYS TAKEN ITS RESPONSIBILITIES; OUR PRINCIPLES OF INTEGRITY, QUALITY AND TRANSPARENCY ARE STRONGLY WOVEN INTO THE FABRIC OF OUR BUSINESS” Strength El Dey ----- Member Management Board
Since 2010 our dedicated local Corporate Social Responsibility experts have made a significant impact across all our operations. They are the ambassadors of our sustainability programme.
Equally, our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy is integrated into every part of the organization - from procurement, manufacturing and distribution to the way we treat customers and local communities. We believe CSR is also essential for strong, sustainable growth.
Compliance with international rules and regulations is a minimum responsibility for every corporation. There are several initiatives in the diamond industry that seek to help companies improve their impact on society and to enhance consumer confidence. We also adhere to codes of different suppliers and customers.
On top, we also engage explicitly in a series of initiatives which we believe help us to consistently improve business and operating practices across the value chain and the markets.
Product integrity and supply chain management are the cornerstones of our sustainability strategy. For Securex there are three facets to integrity, elaborated in the three next chapters. First, integrity means safeguarding a known, ethical and conflict-free provenance of our diamonds. Secondly, we need to guarantee the quality and authenticity of the diamond in all its physical characteristics. And thirdly, we need to ensure that all the steps to bring the finished product to the end consumer have been undertaken with transparent and responsible practices.
Increasingly, businesses in the jewellery supply chain are being questioned about the source and journey of the diamonds, gold and platinum group metals sold. For corporations in the size of Securex, traceability challenges are substantial, as the rough is bought in various locations and is then routed through procurement and sorting offices, before ending on polishing wheels in different factories.
Using the most advanced distribution systems, allied with the utmost human vigilance, we monitor every diamond passing through our manufacturing and finishing process, assuring customers and partners of the integrity of all stones. Our processes are also independently verified.
Purchasing a diamond or a piece of jewellery is all about trust. End consumers have generally limited technical knowledge of the products they are buying and rely on the advice and honesty of sellers throughout the value chain. It is obligatory to guarantee the authenticity of our diamonds and gold jewellery in all physical characteristics. Product disclosure rests on the quality and veracity of the information that is disclosed to the consumer about the diamonds or gold purchased.
Securex believe in the fundamental importance of human rights, and in treating all people fairly, openly and honestly. This not only includes our own employees, partners and customers, but people throughout the world. Through health, education and community programmes, we are driving positive change in countries all over the globe.
Securex’ international reputation for diamond manufacturing expertise and customer service depends entirely on our people. Their dedication, knowledge, skills and experience make the company what it is.
We believe in treating all employees fairly and honestly, and in respecting human rights, wherever we work in the world.
Together with stakeholders, Securex aim to be a force for positive change in the world. With the power of collective action and working partnerships, we can help address some of the world’s most pressing social issues, and create a better tomorrow for communities worldwide. Our community empowerment programmes focus on three key areas:
- Health: Securex support programmes focusing on innovative solutions in healthcare quality, capacity and access.
- Education: Programmes that foster educational opportunities for children worldwide are undertaken by corporation. Improving children’s lives is one of the most important ways to engage in securing a better future.
- Community: Provide financial support and employee volunteers for community health and social programmes to host communities.
By reducing our carbon emissions, and moving to carbon neutrality, Securex help to ensure a safer, more secure future for ourselves and the world.
Environmental sustainability is a critical issue for any business. We recognise the challenge of climate change, and are committed to minimizing the environmental footprint of our business. This makes business, as well as environmental, sense as it helps reduce operating costs and adds ‘green value’ to our products.
We have developed a powerful strategy called ‘Securex Going Green’, which is aimed at investigating all sources of our carbon emissions, and tackling them one by one. Where it is impossible to reduce emissions, Securex discontinue.
