THE RESPONSIBLE JEWELLERY COUNCIL
The Sustainable Responsible Jewellery Council is an international not-for-profit association with over 1,100 Members companies that span the jewellery supply chain from mine to retail. RJC members promote the respect of ethics, human rights and the environment, by adopting good social and environmental practices, in total transparency and along the entire production chain. The goal of this commitment is to provide credible guarantees of product quality and ethics for the entire production sector. RJC has developed a certification system that all members must apply and compliance is verified by an accredited certifying agency. As a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council, Bulgari must comply with the RJC's requirements and ensure that they are respected by all the companies in its production chain. In applying the RJC certification system, Bvlgari SpA and all its subsidiaries, including those companies indirectly controlled by Bvlgari SpA, have adopted management policies and systems that guarantee the respect of the above-mentioned principles. In December 2011, Bvlgari became a certified member of the Responsible Jewellery Council, having adopted the RJC standard system in every phase of its jewellery production and processing phase, guaranteeing full application of ethical and responsible practices through an independent auditing system. As a certified member, Bulgari has demonstrated its business model's full compliance with the organisation's ethical standards and requirements. On January 8th 2015 and subsequently on December 13th 2017, Bvlgari achieved the renewal of the RJC Code of Practices Certification. The renewal confirms Bvlgari's commitment, in close collaboration with its stakeholders, to promote responsible and ethical practices within its business operations and core strategy through a continual dedication to improvement.
