We work with a number of partner organisations to help us improve our social, economic and environmental performance. In addition to our work with the Responsible Jewellery Council (‘RJC’), we are also involved with the following organisations:
- Jewelers of America (JA), the trade association for retail jewellers in the USA. Through its Ethical Initiatives Committee, JA is a leader in promoting debate on corporate social responsibility within the industry. Cartier is a Board member of JA and a member of its Ethical Initiatives Committee.
- The French Union of Jewellery, Silverware, Stones and Pearls (UFBJOP), which is closely involved in various ethical issues and which promotes the highly skilled know-how of jewellery manufacturing in France. Van Cleef & Arpels serves as a Board member.
- The Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry (fhs) is a private, professional and non-profit association. It brings together more than 500 members and represents more than 90 % of all Swiss watch manufacturers. Richemont serves as a Board Member.
