ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND GOVERNANCE (ESG) RATING ■
The jewellery industry has entrenched ESG challenges such as human rights abuses and environmentally remonstrable mining operations.
The 2006 movie “Blood Diamond”, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, put phrases such “blood diamonds” and “conflict diamonds” into people’s consciousness globally.
One of the key reasons for Tiffany’s pursuit of a vertically integrated business model is to lead the industry in ethically produced jewellery. As former CEO Frédéric Cuménal noted that “traceability is the best means of ensuring social and environmental responsibility”*.
