Dodo believes that luxury can have a significant contribution to creating a more sustainable world. It continues to lead through responsibility, accountability, and transparency to catalyze transformational change.
Dodo uses a small proportion of sustainable materials such as responsible gold. It currently invests in the traceability of its gemstones and diamonds and recycling solutions.
Dodo manufactures all of its products in Italy, in its Milan atelier, where over 100 artisans craft one-of-a-kind-jewels every day.
As part of the Kering Group, Dodo has taken steps to evaluate forced labor risks in its supply chain. The group has certified its supply chain under Social Accountability International's (SAI) SA8000 standard.
SA8000 includes an endorsement by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Conventions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Kering continues its commitment to bring all of its businesses into compliance with SA8000 and obtain certification. It regularly audits its supply chain to ensure compliance with high social and environmental standards.
Dodo doesn't use any exotic animal skin, or hair, fur, angora. But it uses leather to manufacture many of its products.
Leather is cruel and unethical and harms the environment by producing greenhouse gases and wastes. More sustainable alternatives exist.
As part of the Kering Group, Dodo reduces its environmental impacts and advocates for social welfare through unprecedented innovation and industry collaboration.
The group aims to reach a 40% reduction target of its overall environmental impacts by 2025.
Dodo is carbon neutral by using greenhouse gas emission offsets that finance verified Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in developing countries (REDD+) projects that conserve critical forests, biodiversity and support the livelihoods of local communities.
Dodo plans to reach 100% sustainable sourcing and 100% traceability for key raw materials by 2025.
Dodo understands that significant work remains to be done. It wants to demonstrate the transformative power of business for change, making sustainability fashionable for the future.
