Two new diamond companies certified as membership grows week by week.
The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) has announced two new members – diamond manufacturers AMC NV and Dalumi Europe BVBA.
Antwerp-based AMC NV has met the RJC’s certification meeting the ethical, human rights, social and environmental standards established by its Member Certification System.
“AMC is deeply committed to upholding only the very highest of ethical standards, and we are honoured that our efforts in this area have been formally recognised through the award of RJC’s certification,” said Lionel Mai, director of AMC.
“We believe that this recognition marks merely the beginning of a journey, for AMC will continually strive to improve the livelihood and wellbeing of our diamond communities whilst at the same time maintaining the quality of the environment from which we seek nature’s most precious gift, the diamond,” added Mai.
Likewise, Dalumi Europe has also met the RJC’s Member Certification Standards. The diamond cutting and polishing manufacturer was audited by Peter Warbrick from SGS, one of the independent third-party auditing firms accredited to the RJC’s Member Certification System.
“As part of our commitment to promote ethical and responsible business practices throughout the industry we were one of the first RJC’s members in 2006 and are now delighted to be certified,” said Michal Marx, head of marketing at Dalumi group.
“Dalumi has a leadership role in the diamond industry and will continue with the efforts to bring human and environmental issues to people’s awareness and thus promote confidence in our industry,” Marx added.
