Creating an action platform for the jewellery and watch industry to contribute to the achievements of the SDGs by 2030

We believe in the importance of partnerships for scalable and meaningful impact and have created the SDG Taskforce to deliver on this commitment.

The SDG Taskforce will:

  • Establish an SDG action Platform to coordinate the efforts of the industry.
  • Launch a global library of best practices on the SDGs implementation.
  • Function as a think-tank for new and collaborative projects on SDG implementation.
  • Report regularly about the progress made through the Annual RJC Progress Report and case studies.
  • Provide input into the RJC 2030 Roadmap and supporting member metrics, which will enable members to measure and report progress on the SDGs.
