Welcome to RJC

Date: Tuesday, 10 November 2020

Time: 8.00am – 9.00am GMT & 3.00pm – 4.00pm

Contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has never been more critical. The SDGs are universally understood and provide an opportunity for businesses to show their commitment to a sustainable world.

In partnership with the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) is enabling this effort towards positive global impacts by the jewellery industry and has launched the RJC SDG Roadshow – a series of webinars for the jewellery and watch global supply chain.

This webinar, which focuses on implementing steps 2 and 3 of the SDG compass will:

  • Provide insight on how a company can define their SDG priorities
  • Explain how you can set your SDG goals
  • Showcase a real-life example from an RJC member company

 

Speakers:

  • Monica Vinader, Founder and CEO, Monica Vinader
  • Jessica Lobo, Global Goals Programme Manager, UN Global Compact
  • Daylia Brown, Membership Engagement, Responsible Jewellery Council

This is one in a series of SDG-specific events and we look forward to welcoming you!

Registration is now open.

About RJC

Responsible Jewellery Council is the leading standards organisation of the global jewellery and watch industry. It has more than 1,450 member companies in 71 countries, that span the jewellery supply chain from mine to retail. RJC Members commit to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices – an international standard on responsible business practices for diamonds, coloured gemstones, silver, gold and platinum group metals. The Code of Practices (COP) addresses human rights, labour rights, environmental impact, mining practices, product disclosure and many more important topics in the jewellery supply chain. RJC also works with multi-stakeholder initiatives on responsible sourcing and supply chain due diligence. The RJC’s Chain-of-Custody Certification (CoC) for precious metals supports these initiatives and can be used as a tool to deliver broader Member and stakeholder benefit. Through the implementation of the COP and CoC members contribute towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 agenda. RJC’s Roadmap 2030 is a framework for our industry with respect to the most impactful contributions our members can make through their supply chains. Impacts deepen consumer confidence and are linked to priority SDGs, they are presented according to the five pillars of sustainable development – People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnerships. In April 2021, RJC launched the SDG Taskforce, an industry-wide action platform to advance the sustainability agenda and benchmark progress in the jewellery and watch supply chain.

RJC is a Full Member of the ISEAL Alliance – the global association for sustainability standards and RJC is a member of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) since 2009. RJC and UNGC entered into a first-of-its-kind strategic partnership in 2020 and launched the ‘SDG Innovation & Impact in the Jewellery Industry” programme. In 2021 RJC deepened this commitment by supporting the UNGC SDG Ambition global impact initiative to accelerate integration of the 17 SDGs into core business management. SDG Ambition enables companies to move beyond incremental progress and step-up transformative change – unlocking business value, building business resilience, and enabling long-term growth.
