„Within the realms of possibility, we would like to approach our further expansion with a high degree of responsibility vis-à-vis customers and partners, society and the environment. This applies to both the existing markets and the collaboration with new countries.“

Thomas Sabo, company founder

In the production

As a conscientious, medium-sized company, choosing the right manufacturing partner is hugely important. We only manufacture our products in countries with established industry-compliant employee protection standards and focus on long-term business relationships. We have been working with some of our jewellery suppliers for decades now. Here, regular audits at all manufacturing sites ensure that we are informed about the production conditions and that international ethics standards are being adhered to.

Thinking globally – and not just in terms of manufacturing and material procurement – is a matter of course for us. For this reason, we collaborate globally with our partners to ensure long-term improvements for man and environment – along the entire value chain and incorporating all THOMAS SABO employees and business partners.

The THOMAS SABO Group is explicitly against child labour. All primary suppliers and partners must guarantee in writing that they do not engage in the commercial exploitation of children and that they adhere to the ‘codes of conduct’ at their manufacturing sites.

At the headquarters

THOMAS SABO – as a regional company – has a particular responsibility in Lauf an der Pegnitz. For this reason, when planning our new company headquarters, which were completed in 2016, we created surroundings for our operating processes that are as environmentally-friendly as possible. This includes waste recycling, energy- and water-efficient systems and choosing environmentally-friendly materials such as certified wood and recycled materials. We deploy geothermal energy for the heating and cooling processes for our everyday operations. Rain water is collected via green roof surfaces and reused after being treated in our in-house rainwater recovery facility. Furthermore, we collaborate with regional suppliers and business partners in the areas of building safety and facility management where possible and continually raise environmental protection awareness among all employees at our headquarters as part of our business remit. And our aim is to structure all existing and new processes with an awareness for society and the environment in the future as well.

As an employer

As a regional and international employer, THOMAS SABO offers people of all ages and with all levels of qualification, from all cultural backgrounds, lifestyles and vocational experience career prospects within the company. We employ, train, accompany and support.

We love people and the world. And we express this with our very strong social commitment. The THOMAS SABO Foundation, established in 2007 and chaired by Thomas Sabo and his son Santiago,  supports disadvantaged children and their families with the objective of helping the next generation and jointly creating a better future for them. Here, the focus is on socio-cultural educational facilities within the Nuremberg region and Colombia.

The work of this charitable foundation extensively takes place away from the public eye. In Germany, the current initiatives supported by THOMAS SABO include the annual RTL Donation Marathon, the RTL Children’s House in Nuremberg and ‘Muschelkinder’ (Shell Children), a non-profit facility for autistic children in Nuremberg. Our international activities include, among other things, supporting the projects of the Manos Providentes Foundation in Santiago de Cali, in the Colombian province of Valle del Cauca.

And our customers also help with the cause, for instance by purchasing exclusive jewellery creations, the proceeds of which always go to swiftly supporting selected charity causes.

The THOMAS SABO Foundation was recognised as a legal foundation with a certificate of recognition presented by the government of Middle Franconia on 16 December 2013. The Foundation supports charitable causes such as the child and youth welfare, education and vocational training, aid to pupils and students, development cooperation, public health and health care. The Foundation is authorised to issue donation receipts for donations in furtherance of the purposes set forth in the articles of association.
