Mini-series Ep 3 How to: start sustainably with Ute Decker, Founder of Ute Decker Jewellery
As this mini-series is a more practical ‘how to’, I wanted to speak to someone who has a great deal of experience in creating an ethical and sustainable business. In this episode, we hear from artist jeweller Ute Decker who simultaneously started her eponymous brand creating unique and limited edition sculptural jewellery, while researching and sharing what she had discovered around creating an ethical company. This research culminated into a site now run by the Incorporation of Goldsmiths called Ethical Making.
For someone thinking of starting up a company with ethical credentials, Ute makes some very strong points. She explains that terms like ‘sustainable’ and ‘responsibly sourced’ are overworked terms and are not necessarily truthful. She emphasises that, to be ethical, we must start by being truthful and accurate in what we claim.
