Our mission is to create high quality products with the lowest possible impact

Our sustainability program, the Low Impact Project, adopts a holistic approach aiming to lower the impact across all operations. We believe sustainable development practices are about balancing social, environmental and economic principles in the core strategy and operations of our company. We want to proactively contribute to reducing the impact of the major environmental challenges our planet is facing. We wish to meet these challenges head on, driving innovation and positive change for the benefit of our customers, employees and industry as a whole.

Low Impact

Each piece of jewellery is made with longevity in mind, from design through prototyping, development and final production. We value natural resources and aim to be carbon conscious at every step of the process. Our low impact strategy is largely focused on excellent craftsmanship, increased traceability of materials and accelerating the use of recycled metals, all while ensuring ethical, sustainable and transparent business practice throughout our supply chain.  

Low Impact Report 2021

We are proud to be among the first Norwegian fashion brands to calculate and share our footprint, both enabling a data-driven strategy for footprint reduction but also empowering our customers to make informed decisions about their purchases.

The results of the report have provided us with an insight into the emission hotspots in our climate impact, and provides a basis for setting priorities in our sustainability journey. To learn more about all our sustainability initiatives.

Company policies

We promote the adoption of the highest social standards across our supply chain requiring all suppliers to adhere to the principles expressed in our Supplier Agreement and our Code of Conduct. Our supplier code of conduct is based on ILO Conventions, the UN Declaration of Human Rights, and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. In addition, we have added a Child Labor policy and an Animal Welfare policy.

Responsible production

We are a proud member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), the leading authority for sustainability standards in the global watch and jewellery industry. The RJC promotes responsible practices in environmental impact awareness, ethics and fair working conditions throughout the supply chain. 

All our main jewellery manufacturers are certified members of the RJC, having obtained the RJC Code of Practices (COP) certification. The COP certification is the only industry standard covering the entire supply chain from start to finish of the jewelry production process. With a high focus on business ethics and responsible supply chain management, it is widely recognized as a global landmark standard.


Transparency is the first step toward more sustainable supply chains. Only through openness can we learn, analyze the risks and mitigate them. Tom Wood is committed to transparency and traceability in raw material sourcing and continues to work collaboratively with industry organizations and our suppliers to promote best practices across our entire supply chain.

We encourage our customers to make informed decisions about their purchases. We believe in providing as much information pertaining to every step in our supply chain as possible. To that end, we maintain full transparency regarding our suppliers, environmental initiatives, fair labor practices, and ethical business standards.

Recycled metals

Silver and gold are the most utilized metals in our jewellery and therefore the most impactful place to start our journey towards circularity. As gold and silver are renewable resources, they can be recycled repeatedly without losing value or purity. We are committed to using only recycled silver and gold by the end of 2023.

A complete switch to recycled silver and gold will reduce our carbon footprint and water usage along with other environmental and social impacts. Our carbon accounting team found that recycled silver is 10 times less carbon intensive than conventional silver and recycled gold 25 less carbon intensive than conventional gold.

Tom Wood Lab

Although we have a deep appreciation for traditional jewellery development techniques, we see that our industry is in need of innovative solutions to evolve, become more efficient and lower the impact on our environment. In 2020, we built a lab in order to take part of our jewellery development in-house. Our lab consists of two 3D printers and a laser engraving machine.
