At the World Business Forum that was held in Milan on October 27 and 28, CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri took on the discussion of Corporate Social Responsibility programme in the jewellery industry with two Nobel Prize laureates, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and the economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman.

"The issues that the two gentlemen discussed at the World Business Forum very much reflected those we currently are dealing with in the jewellery industry," said Dr. Cavalieri. "Vice President Gore looked in depth at certain of the CSR issues that we have been discussing in our industry forums, and he expressed interest in the work that is being done in the jewellery sector. Mr. Krugman, who discussed the most critical issues facing the world economy, was interested to hear that, as a luxury product industry, we are so involved in promoting good corporate citizenship."

Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, largely in recognition of his work in promoting environmental sustainability. This was the focus of his address at the forum in Milan. He has served as the 45th vice president of the United States from 1993 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the Democratic Party nominee for President in the 2000 U.S. presidential election.

Paul Krugman was awarded the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics in 2008 for explaining patterns of international trade and the geographic concentration of wealth. Over the past two years he has written extensively on the impact of the global financial crisis, and has questioned whether the governments of the leading industrialised countries, and particularly the United States, have done enough to stimulate their moribund economies.
