CSR

Employment

As a global company Hennig embraces diversity and respect for different cultures, religions and local customs. Employees different genders, from diverse nations, cultures, ethnic groups, generations, and backgrounds contribute their skills and different perspectives to improving our services and delivering them to our customers.

 

Stakeholder relations

As a world leader in diamond broking and consultancy, Hennig has a responsibility to act according to world-class corporate responsibility benchmarks. At Hennig we recognize and meet these obligations we have towards our people; shareholders; customers; supplier; competitors and the community as a whole. We believe our reputation, together with the trust and confidence of those with whom we deal, to be our most valuable asset.  We therefore demand and maintain the highest ethical standards in carrying out our business activities.

Hennig has embraced the efforts of transferring beneficiation processes to diamond producing countries and our group is a major contributor to the transfer of knowledge and diamond skills to previously deprived sections of the population in these countries.

All of our employees are required to abide by our ethical policy, which outlines Hennig's core values and approach to doing business

 

Community engagement

Over more than a century, Hennig has continually engaged with the local people in countries in which we operate, including donations to charities and volunteering. Recently Hennig has decided to put more emphasis and structure into its community engagement and has developed a proposal through which all staff are to dedicate a set number of working days per year to volunteer work.  The focus is on supporting communities in proximity of our main offices, with emphasis on education and support for disadvantaged youth or elderly people. This is done either through individual volunteering or group events managed by the local offices. We will be regularly sharing these activities as we progress with this initiative.

 

Environmental engagement

In line with enhanced global environmental awareness, which is also evident in the diamond industry, Hennig believes that the company and individuals should take an active part in reducing impact on the environment. Therefore, Hennig is working on improving its operational procedures to reduce the impact on the environment.

Air travel

Our business requires extensive air travel.  To mitigate that, Hennig offsets the effect our air travel creates, calculating our carbon footprint on an annual basis and buying offsetting credits from recognized exchanges. These credits are used to invest in initiatives that avoid, reduce or remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, preferably in countries where Hennig is doing business.

Waste management

In an attempt to reduce the amount of waste produced by our offices, Hennig encourages our executives to put an emphasis on recycling of waste and avoiding the use of non-recyclable, disposable dishes. Each office manager is tasked with exploring possibilities on a local level, develop and advertise guidelines in their office, and provide the resources for office staff to meet the guidelines, with the aim to continuously improve our operations
