A common understanding:
Harmonising the language of responsible supply chains
January 21, 2024

The CIBJO seminar, which took place on January 21, 2024, at the Italian Exhibition Group’s VICENZAORO’s January show in Vicenza, Italy, considered how, with supply chain integrity becoming a critical component of a jewellery item’s real worth, the terminology used to describe and evaluate responsible social and environmental practices is increasingly important. In particular, it look at the work of CIBJO’s Jewellery Industry Supply Chain Nomenclature Committee, which was created to develop a set of universally agreed to nomenclature related to responsible sourcing and sustainability that would be applicable both in the industry and in marketing and informational messages in the consumer markets.

The keynote speaker was Feriel Zerouki, Chair of CIBJO’s Jewellery Industry Supply Chain Nomenclature Committee, who is also Senior Vice President Corporate Affairs at the De Beers Group and President of World Diamond Council, who was joined by Melanie Grant, Executive Director of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), and Tiffany Stevens, President of the CIBJO Ethics Commission and President, CEO and Chief Counsel of the Jewelers Vigilance Committee. Edward Johnson, Corporate Responsibility Director at Gemfields, led the discussion.
