Benefits of Membership

RJC members commit to sustainability

Wherever you are in the jewellery supply chain, RJC membership is your pathway to sustainable growth. We believe responsible business is good business. Our Code of Practices is the only independently verified sustainability standard for the global jewellery and watch industry covering the entire supply chain, from mine to retail. RJC members benefit from access to a global community as well as¬ our technical expertise, support and educational materials.

Sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement. RJC membership gives you the opportunity to accelerate yours. What differentiates us is that we have one solution for businesses, big or small, to integrate sustainability in its operations. Our standards cover Human Rights, Labour Rights, Health and Safety, Product integrity and many other key topics. It’s critical that companies do not view any of these key issues in isolation. The Code of Practices supports members to be prepared in an evolving regulatory landscape.

The Code of Practices 2019 is aligned with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and the UN Guiding Principles of Business and Human Rights. Through the implementation of the Code of Practices, members contribute towards the United Nations 2030 agenda and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
