The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) has announced that Cartier, a founding Member of the Council, has become certified against the ethical, human rights, social and environmental standards established by the RJC’s Member Certification System.

Cartier’s President and CEO, Bernard Fornas commented that the company “believe the RJC standard is a powerful and effective way to drive positive change through the jewellery supply chain from mining all the way to retail.”
Cartier is also a ‘citizen of the world’ present on all continents, committed to promoting contemporary art through the Foundation Cartier, an initiator of ethical standards in the jewellery industry with the Responsible Jewellery Council, and at the forefront of the fight against international counterfeiting.
