All that glitters is not gold: Shining a light on supply chain disclosure in the jewellery sector.

Author: Ardea International, Published on: 11 December 2017

This report focuses on the jewellery sector. We have included eight of the major jewellers in the UK, namely the Signet Group (and the companies under its control, as listed in the table in this report), Tiffany & Co., Goldsmiths, Links, F. Hinds, Beaverbrooks, Boodles and Cartier.

The primary objectives of this report have been to:

  1. Examine the modern slavery statements of the selected companies to see if they meet the legal requirements of the MSA and the steps being taken to address modern slavery issues. We have also examined their statements to understand to what extent the reporting requirements of the MSA have had an impact on their approach to identifying and managing the risk of modern slavery in their supply chains;
  2. Examine any related CSR / human rights information that may be relevant to understanding how they are tackling modern slavery in their supply chains;
  3. Examine the role of third party certification systems and industry regulatory systems (the Responsible Jewellery Council and the Kimberley Process) to understand their impact on addressing modern slavery in supply chains;
  4. Provide a resource to both the jewellery sector and to other business to better understand the impact of disclosure legislation and practices and the role of industry certification bodies on company systems to address modern slavery issues in the supply chain.

Also refers to: Links, F.Hinds, Beaverbrooks, Jared (part of Signet) & Pagoda (Part of Signet)
