Corporate and social responsibility

100% guaranteed conflict-free diamond policy

Every single diamond we sell comes with the guarantee that it is 100% ‘conflict free’.

We are active supporters and promoters of the Kimberley Process, the industry‐wide initiative to wipe out the trade of diamonds to fund conflict in war‐torn regions. Every diamond transaction we make is in the strictest accordance with the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme. Our diamonds are all purchased from verified sources that have no involvement with conflict, terrorism or illicit trade activity, including money laundering.

Responsible business practices

We are committed to upholding and promoting the highest standards of ethical conduct in the industry, including the Diamond Trading Company’s Best Practice Principles. As a recognised global leader, we take our role in securing the reputation of the industry very seriously, and encourage our business partners to do the same.

We guarantee all of our diamonds are entirely natural, untreated products, and their characteristics are represented accurately both to trade customers and consumers.

We pride ourselves on being one of the best employers in the business. We provide the highest standards of working conditions, and place great importance on ensuring the health, safety and comfort of our workers.

Throughout our business we endeavour to minimise the environmental impact of our operations. Our efforts range from installing innovative ‘greener’ technologies in our factories, to encouraging our employees to incorporate energy‐conserving habits into their daily routines.

We have transparent and fully auditable business processes and reporting practices.

Educational programmes

We are passionate about education and learning, and support projects both within the field of diamonds, and beyond.

We sponsored the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) to establish an educational and research facility in India. This is an important development for the local industry and has brought new skills and expertise to India.

Members of the Shrenuj Board funded the establishment of the Shri Kalidas Sankalchand Doshi Jain Academy Educational and Research Centre, a study unit within the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda.

Community programmes

The promoters of the Shrenuj Group have established a charitable trust fund, providing funding and donations for a variety of community programmes. These range from initiatives to improve the social welfare of underprivileged groups, to providing care for abandoned animals in India.

Cultural programmes

We are committed supporters and sponsors of Indian art. In addition to supporting some of India’s most promising emerging contemporary artists and exhibiting a varied and eclectic range of works, we also sponsor a programme with the Victoria & Albert Museum, London for the conservation of Indian art.

International responsibilities

We take an active role in supporting India’s relations with other countries.

Shrenuj's Chairmain & Managing Director, Mr Shreyas Doshi, is Honorary Consul for Finland, a position he has held since 2005. This reflects the long‐standing support and important trade contribution the Group has made to the nation over many years.

Shrenuj’s Executive Director, Mr Vishal Doshi, was appointed Honorary Consul for Botswana in 2008. The primary responsibilities of this role are to improve the trade, tourism and cultural ties between India and Botswana.

On top of official duties in this area, we seek to offer development opportunities and share our expertise with foreign nationals from these countries.For example, we sponsored a jewellery designer from Botswana in 2008, training him for a month at our headquarters in Mumbai, and manufacturing his design. This went on to win the Diamond Trading Company’s Botswana Shining Light award in 2009.
