Sustainability and social responsibility
Goldsmiths’ Club and Intesa Sanpaolo’s Research and Studies Department chose the stage of Vicenzaoro January 2024 www.vicenzaoro.com to question “The Italian gold sector: new challenges in a changing scenario.” At the center of the debate was the panorama of Italian supply chains and the international demand for gold and precious metals. A sector registering positive dynamics for the first part of 2023, but interfacing with an increasingly complex international scenario.
Traceable supply chains and reduction of environmental impacts, inclusiveness and promotion of principles for women’s empowerment in the gold and jewelry industry, sharing of universally agreed nomenclatures. The application of sustainable and responsible practices is the focus of seminars organized by Cibjo, the International Confederation of Jewelry, in collaboration with Watch & Jewellery Initiative 2030, World Gold Council and Platinum Guild International – PGI. With participation from experts in sustainable innovation and social responsibility from different parts of the value chain and luxury brands such as Kering and Cartier, sharing best practices and partnerships under the banner of traceability will be discussed.
