The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) has launched ‘The Roadmap to 2030 and Beyond’ to help the organisation realise its sustainable development goals (SDG).
The Roadmap to 2030 and Beyond will reportedly set out a clear pathway for the RJC and its members as well as find candidates for the SDG Taskforce by 22 January 2021.
Members of the RJC have been asked to submit their nomination via an online form, demonstrating how they meet the taskforce participant criteria.
The council said it will also invite two external experts (NGO and academic) to join the taskforce, with nominations expected to close on 5 February 2021.
David Bouffard, chairman for RJC, said: “15 years have passed since that historic moment in London when 14 organisations came around the table to establish a standards organisation for the whole jewellery and watch industry.
“Now with over 1300 members, we are forging confidently ahead on our journey of continuous improvement toward building an even stronger responsible supply chain that promotes greater trust in the global jewellery and watch industry.”
Iris van der Veken, executive director for RJC added that sustainability is about “bringing purpose” and people to the next level and measuring progress and positive impact.
She explained that the roadmap will pave a “clear pathway” for members on what the council can achieve collectively and includes “performance indicators” to assess and measure “progress, promote positive” behavioural change, and to report performance more comprehensively.
