The Management and Associates of Hardy Brothers Jewellers are aware of the fragility of the beautiful Australian landscape and its ecology. The company is also aware of the potential negative impact that non-regulated industrial activity may have not only on the earth’s environment but also on the lives of workers and their families engaged in industry.
Our brand Supports sustainable business practices both internally, and of our supply chain partners.
It is recognised that international supply chains are becoming more complex as the various stages in the production process are increasingly becoming more decentralised across borders and jurisdictions. Although direct involvement through all stages of the external productive process is not practical, Hardy Brothers Jewellers has adopted the approach of requesting the cooperation of its supply chain partners and seeking their assurance that sustainable policies are adopted within their respective operations.
To provide greater certainty in the adoption of identical standards throughout the supply chain, Hardy Brothers supports the recent publication of ISO 204001 , the first international voluntary standard on Sustainable Procurement.
