ALROSA has become a member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) since August 11, 2016. The Responsible Jewellery Council-an international not-for-profit organization focuses on enhancing consumer confidence in the jewellery industry and promoting of responsible business practices.

Aiming at this goal, RJC has developed a proprietary Certification System, based on the Code of Practices. Each of the RJC members has to undergo an independent audit on various issues.

"Consumers around the world are giving great importance to the origin of diamonds in jewellery. We believe it is important to demonstrate to the consumer that diamond mining is a socially responsible business that creates jobs, supports local communities and cares about the environment. ALROSA has always adhered to high standards of corporate social responsibility and is ready to prove it in the audit process," said Andrey Polyakov, ALROSA Vice President.

RJC Membership was approved by the shareholders of ALROSA at its recent annual general meeting. In accordance with the procedure, within two years ALROSA will undergo an independent audit of its business operation to obtain an RJC certification.

We are pleased to welcome ALROSA to the RJC and delighted to see the enthusiasm of the company to demonstrate its business transparency and its compliance with international best practices. RJC Membership and the resulting Certification of ALROSA against the RJC Code of Practices, will be further recognition of the diamond industry’s efforts to adhere to the highest standards of responsible business,” - noted Andrew Bone, the RJC Executive Director.

To date, the RJC includes more than 800 companies representing various sectors of the diamond industry.
