Earth Day 2024: How We Can Change the Ammolite Industry for the Better

Celebrate Earth Day as we embark on a journey from the depths of Alberta’s mines to the dazzling, vibrant and investment-worthy Ammolite gemstone. Traceability, responsible sourcing, transparent supply chains, and sustainable practice are beyond buzzwords at Iniskim – here, it is how we help revolutionize the Ammolite industry.

The goal: to collectively push the envelope towards responsible Ammonite and Ammolite industry practices that honour our planet.

Join us as we explore the vital importance of ethical sourcing and sustainability, ensuring that every Iniskim Ammolite gemstone reflects our unwavering commitment to environmental and ethical integrity.

Ethically Sourced – Iniskim Ammolite Gemstone

In 2004, the Mining Association of Canada (MAC) launched the Towards Sustainable Mining (TSM) initiative, a groundbreaking effort that established an international benchmark for ethical mining practices. As the pioneering mining standard globally, TSM strives to elevate environmental and social performance across the industry.

Ethical mining under TSM encompasses several key principles, including stringent safety measures to protect workers, fair wages for laborers, and the adoption of eco-friendly equipment and techniques.

Since the introduction of Canada’s TSM, mining jurisdictions worldwide have followed suit, enhancing their own standards to align with ethical practices. Today, gemstones sourced from ethical mines are highly valued by collectors and buyers who prioritize responsibly-sourced stones.

While mining inherently carries some environmental impact, the ethical mining initiative aims to mitigate harm to the Earth, workers, and surrounding communities. In the case of Ammolite, unique to Alberta, Canada, mining operations adhere to the country’s rigorous standards. These typically involve artisanal mines, smaller-scale operations known for employing methods with minimal environmental footprint.

When you choose Iniskim Ammolite, you’re not just acquiring a gemstone; you’re investing in an ethical commitment to sustainability and responsible sourcing. Let’s celebrate Earth’s natural treasure, where beauty meets conscience.

Recognizing Earth Day

Earth Day holds great meaning as it holds us accountable as we strive for greater transparency and integrity in every facet of our operations.

We’re proudly aligned with the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA), having earned the prestigious Ethical Member Accreditation. This accreditation is a testament to our unwavering commitment to propel the gemstone industry forward through ethical mining and sustainable trading practices.

And our dedication to Earth Day extends far beyond a single day of observance; it’s a lifelong promise woven into the fabric of our company culture. Our commitment also doesn’t stop there; we choose to work towards a brighter, more sustainable future for all in the Ammolite industry.

We choose to:

  • Only provide ethically-sourced Ammolite,
  • Invest in ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) to hold accountability in our practices,
  • Prioritize the integrity of our work and high ethical business standards,
  • Cultivate positive relationships and environments for our workers, customers, and communities alike, and
  • Educate, lead, and advocate as we endeavor to set the standard for responsible sourcing and supply of Ammolite and Ammonite.

As stewards of the natural precious gifts of Ammonite and Ammolite, we are entrusted with the responsibility to cherish and protect our planet for generations to come.

This Earth Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to sustainable practices and ethical stewardship in the gemstone industry. By embracing innovative and eco-friendly solutions, we can pave the way for a brighter future, both for our beloved gemstones and the Earth.

Together, let’s forge a path towards sustainability, ensuring that our actions today leave a legacy of beauty and integrity for tomorrow. Happy Earth Day!
