Advisory Auditing Training

Moving Past Compliance Towards Industry Leadership

RCS Global and its partner Better Sourcing Program are helping an increasing number of companies to change how precious metals and stones are produced and traded, making the industry more responsible, ethical and transparent. Our ground breaking work with the electronics sector has led us to comprehensively map supply chains in conflict minerals, battery minerals and precious metals from Africa, South America, through multiple tiers in China and beyond. Likewise, in the DRC, Better Sourcing is working with USAID to deliver ethical gold from artisanal mining communities through transparent supply chains.

Proving ethical conduct in jewellery supply chains

To be considered a responsible sourcing leader in today’s jewellery industry, your company needs to fully understand the provenance of the precious metals and stones in your supply chain, as well as maintain a best-in-class supply chain due diligence program. Further, your company needs to support practices that benefit economic, social and environmental development for the upstream mining communities from which you source.

The key steps for any jewellery company are:

  1. Assess responsible sourcing approach and management systems
  2. Evaluate due diligence and traceability procedure
  3. Develop a plan to improve systems and processes
  4. Map your supply chain and engage with suppliers
  5. Explore traceability and Chain of Custody Systems
