Wherever you are in the jewellery supply chain, RJC membership is your pathway to sustainable growth 

Our membership connects you to a powerful and growing community of brands, suppliers, and companies around the world. Members come together to create a more sustainable and responsible watch and jewellery industry and access learning opportunities, tools, relevant data, insight reports, industry networks, and more. 

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.
