RAPAPORT... ALROSA has signed up for the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), implying it will undergo an independent audit of its operations within two years to gain RJC certification.

The appraisal covers finance and legal compliance, as well as ethical criteria such as anti-corruption measures, human rights, labor conditions social responsibility and environmental protection.

"Consumers around the world are giving great importance to the origin of diamonds in jewelry,” said Andrey Polyakov, ALROSA’s vice president (pictured). “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.”

ALROSA has joined fellow diamond miners De Beers, Dominion Diamond Corporation, Rio Tinto and Lucara Diamond Corp in signing up for membership. The RJC’s body of members comprises more than 800 companies from across the diamond industry.
