Our Commitment

Since EC One first started making jewellery 25 years ago in 1997, we’ve come to understand the key to making a lasting, treasured piece of jewellery. We are committed to making beautiful jewellery that is using ethically and responsibly sourced materials in our B Corp certified London workshop.

We established EC One in 1997, our heritage means that our skilled team knows through experience what makes up a beautiful, lasting piece of jewellery.

At the core of EC One is our Workshop; it is an integral part of who we are. It’s a place in which we celebrate, showcase and preserve goldsmithing skills. As a company we believe in training up the next generation of Goldsmiths, through our apprenticeship program with the ambition to keep these valuable skills alive.

But don’t just take our word for it; because the workshop is located at the back of the store you can see it firsthand. Experience the sounds, see the workbenches, tools and equipment that create our jewellery.

A critical part of EC One’s journey has been our desire to be transparent and trustworthy. So that our customers can buy with confidence, we work closely with our suppliers and stone dealers to ensure the integrity of their supply chains. We’re always endeavouring to improve our practices and keep making positive steps towards combating the environmental crisis that we are in.

We know as a company we are not perfect, but as the founders we felt a sense of responsibility and purpose to address and change how we operate, which is why in 2018 we set out to become a B Corp. It took 9 months of going through the business with a fine tooth comb and making changes to every part of the business. We reviewed everything from energy suppliers, to loo roll to where our stones come from, we were awarded B Corp certification in 2019. We are so proud of this achievement. B Corps are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability to balance people, planet and profit. Excitingly they are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

As a company we endeavour to be proactive and engage with environmental and social issues. Alongside being a B Corp we are also proud to be Carbon measured and are working towards our goal of becoming net zero by 2025.

EC One is distinctive and pioneering, never wanting to conceal or exclude others in the process of growing and developing. We love to champion our guest designers and share the responsibility journey with them, as we recognise that we need each other if we are going to successfully make a positive impact.

In every decision we reflect back on our purpose as a company to integrate our sustainable principles. We are excited about using that business as a force for good. For us that means knowing our supply chain, being a female majority business, training up the next generation of Goldsmiths through our apprenticeship program, making sure that we recycle effectively and making our jewellery in our on site London workshop.

1% for the Planet

We know that we take more from the planet than we put back - whatever we do.

We really want to do better, so we have taken the decision to give 1% of our sales to the planet.

That’s 1% of our turnover, not profit, every year (even if it’s a tough one).


We are working with 1% for the Planet to fund environmental non-profits to create a healthy planet and help keep us accountable.

Being Carbon Measured 

The climate crisis is real, and at the moment, we are part of the problem, not the solution. Since becoming a B Corp, we have changed how we work and the suppliers we use to reduce our carbon emissions. However, we can’t know how effective we are without being measured. In 2021 we worked with Eight Associates to calculate every source of CO2 emissions that we were responsible for the previous year. This totalled 71.33 tCO2e, broken down into the 3 scopes; 

 

Scope 1 Direct Emissions tCO2e 2020: 0.03 

Scope 2 Indirect Emissions tCO2e 2020: 3.60

Scope 3 All other Indirect Emissions tCO2e 2020: 67.70

  

Now we have a measure of what we are responsible for, we have made a plan to reduce and offset this to Net Zero by 2027.
