On February 2017 Nuovi Gioielli achieved the Chain Of Custody Certification (CoC) for its gold jewellery products lines. The Chain Of Custody Standard, settled from the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC)in accordance with the OECD Guidelines, promotes the usage of precious metals sourced in a responsible way among the whole supply chain.
What does responsibly sourced mean?
RJC defines responsibly sourced metals as conflict-free as a minimum, and responsibly produced at each step of the supply chain. This means that appropriate standards apply for human rights, labour standards, environmental impact, and business ethics as articulated in the RJC Code of Practices Standard.
Aiming to ensure the long term compliance with RJC CoC Standard provisions, Nuovi Gioielli has implemented an appropriate internal and external management system which ensures the segregation of CoC certified material in each step of the manufacturing process from metal procurement to finished product delivery.
The certification ensures the implementation of responsible manufacturing and sourcing processes among the whole supply chain and it confirms Nuovi Gioielli commitment to ensure gold traceability not only through its manufacturing processes but also involving its suppliers with a continuous improvement perspective.
