TOUS, new member of the Responsible Jewellery Council

Undoubtedly, sustainability and responsibility throughout the supply chain are real problems in the jewellery sector. TOUS, in order to be recognized for its ethical practices and sustainable commitment, has become part of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), a non-profit organization created to promote ethics, protect human rights and responsible social practices.

Belonging to the RJC it represents for TOUS a very important exchange of knowledge and collaboration within the jewellery sector. In addition, this certification will help TOUS to reinforce, even more, its commitment and its practices in specific areas such as environmental awareness. Thanks to TOUS's ethical and sustainable behaviour and the standards to which it adheres, not only the brand but also its suppliers of gold and diamonds, have made it possible to pass the demanding membership process.

The mission of the Responsible Jewellery Council is to help establish a code of conduct for participants in the jewellery trade from the origins till their retail points. In addition, the RJC works to clearly define the ethical, social and environmental standards applicable in all areas of the gold and diamond jewellery industry, promote and facilitate the application of these standards and ensure that the implementation of these regulations is verified through autonomous third-party monitoring.

To date, there are more than 360 organizations that are part of the Responsible Jewellery Council. TOUS, in order to enhance the transparency of the jewellery sector, will continue to work ethically and responsibly and will continue to be committed to sustainability.
