fish habitats. Brilliant Earth sources Canadian diamonds from mines that have integrated sustainable development into their practices. Currently, Brilliant Earth's Canadian diamonds originate from two Canadian diamond mines, the Diavik and the Ekati Diamond Mines. Both of these mines have demonstrated a strong commitment to the local Aboriginal people. The Diavik Canadian Diamond Mine promotes sustainability through its environmental monitoring agreements and labor training programs with the Canadian Government and local indigenous tribal groups. A management plan governs the environmental stewardship of land and water at the Ekati Canadian Diamond Mine, which includes comprehensive tracking and response programs for wildlife and aquatics. Both mines are independently monitored and certified as ISO 14001 compliant for their environmental quality and control processes.
