LOKORO was created on the philosophy that a company must incorporate the universal principles of integrity, diversity, and accountability.
We believe economic growth can, and must be achieved with social and environmental responsibility.
All people are entitled to basic human rights and freedom as these are the cornerstone of every society. It is everyone’s responsibility to increase its access, and protect these freedoms. LOKORO’s position in both the beginning and middle of the supply chain allows us to influence many mining operations: Human Rights issues through our financing; mining joint ventures; and partnerships in addition to responsible sourcing and taking absolute responsibility where we can provide influence outside our normal sodality.
Product integrity and quality improvement is our primary way of enhancing customer value. Product integrity focuses on managing the different stages in the life cycle of our diamonds. We address product integrity in our value chain through:
- Sourcing from reputable suppliers and companies based on the reliability of the sellers, professionalism and business practices.
LOKORO has always taken its social and environmental responsibilities seriously. Our principles of integrity, quality and transparency are woven into the fabric of the business - from procurement and distribution, to the way we treat our people and local communities.
Equally, our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Strategy is integrated into every part of the organization. This not only is the right thing to do; we believe it is essential for strong, sustainable growth.
Our CSR Strategy is formulated around three core values:
- Integrity: We strive always to do what is right, and we always keep our promises.
- Accountability: We deliver the same promise of trust and quality to every customer; wherever they might be located around the world.
- Diversity: We embrace human diversity, and treat everyone with the same respect and dignity.
