Jewellery, like Paris, should be considered symbolic of sustainability, says CIBJO President

19 june 2017
The jewellery industry's challenge in coming years will be to position itself as a model of sustainable development, thereby appealing to a new generation of consumers, said CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri, speaking at the 16th Paris Gemmological Rendez-Vous. The event was hosted by the Association Française de Gemmologie and chaired by its president, Didier Giard.
One of the reasons that CIBJO has been so firm in its support of the Paris Gemmological Rendez Vous is the commitment that the event has shown in promoting issues related to sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility, and various initiatives such as the World Day of the Sustainable Management of Gems Mines and Pearl Farms, Dr. Cavalieri said.
"I would note that CIBJO strongly supports a vigorous carbon reduction drive in the jewellery and gemstone sector, and indeed for four years now we have been completely carbon neutral. Furthermore, we are operating a programme to promote carbon neutrality throughout our industry, and we will be happy to work together with any of you looking to make a similar move," the CIBJO President stated, in his address to the gathering.
"They say that in the 21st Century gemstone and jewellery market, millennial consumers want the products they buy to have social as well as monetary value. We are in a position to provide them with just that," Dr. Cavalieri noted.
