Jewellery, Watches and Sustainability

Event Details
Event Description

Discover what the jewellery and watch industry is doing to advance sustainability action throughout the supply chain

The jewellery and watch industry has a larger ambition to contribute to a better world. For more than 15 years, the industry has been changing the way it does business and transforming global supply chains to be responsible and sustainable. But, there is always more we can do.

As a strategic partner of United Nations Global Compact, and our ongoing support of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the RJC leadership panel at the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2021, offers lively debate and practical guidance to CEOs looking to advance sustainability action within their organisation and supply chains.
