FACETS Sri Lanka & the Sustainability Pavilion

Sri Lanka is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, resulting in an abundance of precious gems. The Sri Lankan gem industry understands the value of nature and the importance of preserving it, and as such, takes great effort to ensure sustainable environmental practices are followed.

As part of their Sustainability Pavilion at Facets Sri Lanka, the Sri Lanka Gem and Jewellery Association initiated a ‘Tree Planting Campaign’ for the gem and jewellery community on the 18th of November 2023. The tree planting occurred at the Wijeya Holiday Resorts in Kiriella and on the day the members of SLGJA planted over 500 trees. Many within the industry pledged to continue these sustainable practices to ensure that Sri Lanka continues to be known internationally for its best practices in the Gem & Jewellery industry.

The group also visited an old two acre Gem Mining area where after carefully closing it, many valuable Kumbuk Trees were planted to ensure the land is preserved while the trees will ensure clean water and oxygen for the people in that area.

Visit the first ever Sustainability Pavilion at Asia’s premier gem and jewellery exhibition, Facets Sri Lanka 2024, between the 6th and 8th of January 2024 at the Atrium Lobby – Cinnamon Grand Hotel, to celebrate the gem industry’s 30 years of brilliance while experiencing a dazzling variety of Sri Lankan gems.
