Birmingham-based jewellery group WB The Creative Jewellery Group (WBTCJG), which comprises Domino Jewellery, Gecko and Weston Beamor has achieved accreditation from the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC).
The renewed accreditation reflects the manufacturer’s policies on corporate social responsibility and ethical sourcing.
Head of quality control and quality assurance at WBTCJG, Fiona Pluck said: “We want to remain leaders in ethics and RJC accreditation is central to this vision. We have an evolving strategy. We’re focused on further increasing the transparency of our supply chain. We are open and transparent about our ambitions and we are independently audited.
“We are all very proud of our ethical strategy and it’s truly a team effort. All divisions are clear on the commitments we have made and their part in the wider picture. I rely heavily on my colleagues to fulfil our commitments and they make sure that the policies and processes are adhered to, whether that’s ethical audit reports denoting stones sources or COSSH documentation from our cleaning staff.
“I work very closely with Mark Thomas, Domino Jewellery’s operations director too; this ensures that there is senior management buy-in and leadership to drive compliance and inspire innovation across the Group. Focusing on ethics for WBTCJG simply means making sure everyone involved in the production and delivery of our jewellery is properly looked after,” added Pluck.
