Introducing the Gemstones and Jewellery Community Platform
The gemstone and jewellery industry plays a vital economic role for millions of people around the world. It is a diverse and vibrant industry comprising companies of all types, size, and shape. Each company plays a fundamental role in transforming precious stones and minerals into unique jewellery pieces we love. Yet, more can be done to ensure that the industry protects the livelihoods of all who work in it, and depend on it, as well as the environment.
The Gemstones and Jewellery Community Platform brings individuals and companies together, to collectively improve industry standards of corporate accountability, by taking action towards shared commitments on human rights, fair labour practices, environmental protection, and governance.
Founded by the Coloured Gemstones Working Group (CGWG), the Gemstones and Jewellery Community Platform offers free resources and tools to enable individuals and companies, from small-scale mining operators to retailers, to learn more about, and implement, responsible business practices, in a continuous improvement approach.
