At Beaverbrooks we are committed to enriching people’s lives and, for us, that means the people we do business with as well as our customers. We joined the Responsible Jewellery Council in February 2009 as we want to feel confident that standards of human rights and environmental impact are being upheld across our supply chain, as well as giving our customers confidence in the integrity of the products they buy from us.
The Responsible Jewellery Council is a not-for-profit standards setting and certification organisation who has more than 440 Member companies spanning the jewellery supply chain from mine to retail. As members of the RJC we commit to and are independently audited against the RJC Code of Practices, which is an international standard imposing responsible business practices for diamonds, gold and platinum group metals. As well as many other important areas of the jewellery supply chain, the Code of Practices addresses human rights, labour rights, environmental impact, mining practices and product disclosure.
By continuing our membership of the RJC, we feel confident that we are conducting business in a way which aligns with our own key principles and that we are helping to improve the wider community.
