The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) and the JNA Awards will partner to promote sustainable and ethical business practices globally in the gemstone industry and international jewellery.
RJC, which has more than 1,100 member-companies in 75 countries that span the entire jewellery supply chain, will introduce to its members the platform of JNA Awards, a world-renowned programme organised by UBM Asia.
The action is expected to reach a greater number of organisations by sharing success stories and inspiring others in ensuring responsible and ethical practices.
Letitia Chow, founder of JNA and director of business development of Jewellery Group at UBM Asia, said: “RJC has been a global pioneer in safeguarding and standardising best business practices in the jewellery industry. Collaborating with the RJC reinforces the JNA Awards’ resolve to promote excellence on every aspect of the supply chain.”
The executive director at RJC, Andrew Bone, added: “We are always keen to recognise industry trailblazers who are making a real impact and through joining forces with the JNA Awards, I believe together we can further communicate the many benefits of responsible jewellery, globally.”
