SRK Pledges to Achieve Net Zero Carbon Emissions for Its Diamond Crafting Facilities by 2024

(PRESS RELEASE)One of the world’s leading diamond crafting companies, Shree Ramkrishna Exports Pvt. Ltd. (SRK), announced an ambitious commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions for two of its diamond crafting facilities by 2024, six years earlier than India’s 2030 goals. The milestone will be reached in partnership with The Global Network for Zero (GNFZ), an international leadership collective dedicated to accelerating the solutions that will lead to a worldwide zero emissions economy.

The two facilities, SRK Empire and SRK House, were previously recognized for achieving LEED certification. In 2015, SRK Empire achieved LEED Gold and, due to ongoing improvements, was able to re-certify as LEED Platinum in 2018. SRK is also tracking their operational performance in energy, water, waste, transportation and occupant experience at SRK Empire, and their performance score remains one of the highest in the world for all LEED buildings. SRK House, which became operational in 2017, achieved LEED Platinum under the existing buildings rating system.

“As a purpose driven company, we believe our commitment to quality and to society and the environment are of the utmost importance” said Shri Govind Dholakia (Govindkaka), founder & chairman of SRK.

“We are committed to mobilizing the wider industry and other sectors to join us. Achieving net zero at SRK Empire and SRK House by 2024 will set an industry-wide example of how to completely transform large scale operations for the betterment of the planet,” said Jayanti Narola, entrepreneur-SRK. “

“What leaders like SRK are doing has a generational effect,” said GNFZ President and CEO Mahesh Ramanujam. “When leaders make bold decisions and put their personal brand and commitment behind it, waves are made and transformation happens. But it also takes implementation at all levels; tops down commitment inspires bottoms up progress. When bold decisions at the top translate to meaningful action on the ground, it can change the world.”




This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
