Girard-Perregaux certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC)

From our partner site - Tempus Fugit

This is the type of news that most blogs and forums don't cover.  It isn't sexy - at least not in the "watch as pornography" way we tend to think about watches.  Further we tend to think of industry news (such as comings and goings) with the same sort of titillation generally reserved for People Magazine.

So today, I wanted to share some good, honest and real news.  Girard-Perregaux has been certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC).  

Responsible and ethical business behavior - I think that's pretty sexy!

Here's the news, straight from La Chaux-de-Fonds -

Girard-Perregaux, iconic high-end Swiss watch manufacturer, is proud to announce that it has achieved Responsible Jewelry Council certification by meeting the ethical, social and environmental standards established by the RJC’s Member Certification System.

'We are honored to be accredited by the Responsible Jewelry Council. This certification underpins Girard-Perregaux's belief in corporate social responsibility and sustainability, while we continue to work towards achieving the highest ethical best practices both internally and externally in our business. This is an encouragement to push forward with our commitment!' says Sowind (Girard-Perregaux and JeanRichard) CEO Michele Sofisti.

As part of the PPR Group, Girard-Perregaux is also working closely with PPR’s sustainability experts in PPR HOME in striving to ensure traceability and the company champions PPR’s commitment to source 100% of gold and diamonds used in the Group’s products from verified operations that do not have a harmful impact on local communities, wildlife or the ecosystems which support them, by 2016.
