HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rising e-commerce Direct Selling company QNET is working in partnership with suppliers who are certified members of The Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC) to reduce instances of unlawful mining practices and improve supply chain traceability. The fashion industry is one of the biggest consumer markets in the world, but it’s also been host to a number of ethical concerns. In 2021, consumers are demanding more transparent supply chains and ethical sourcing of raw materials.
RJC is a not-for-profit, global leader in standard setting and ethical sustainability in the jewelry and luxury watch industries. RJC ensures that members are compliant with ethical standards through periodic third-party auditing along the entire supply chain. QNET is working closely with suppliers that uphold the RJC Code of Practices, an independently audited and ISEAL accredited standard of operational integrity and responsible supply chain management to ensure collections are produced in an equitable and ethical manner.
QNET’s luxury brand Bernhard H. Mayer’s latest release, The Timeless Tanzanite Collection, features exceptionally rare Tanzanite gems that are unique to Northern Tanzania. The meticulously crafted pieces incorporate gemstones that are ethically and sustainably mined in compliance with RJC standards, in addition to supporting employees’ livelihood and the local Tanzanian mining industry.
QNET’s gold jewelry collections (such as the Theia Set) are made with recycled gold. QNET only uses recycled gold sourced from suppliers who adhere to The London Bullion Market Association’s Responsible Gold Guidance, which requires refineries to adhere to human rights’ laws and comply with high standards of anti-money laundering practices.
QNET CEO, Ms Malou Caluza, explains that sustainability has always been at the heart of QNET. “Working with suppliers who are responsible, fair, and ethical is important to QNET as it is an integral part of our business core values. We strive to deliver more than high quality products – we want our customers to be able to buy with confidence knowing that each piece is produced in fair working conditions using sustainable materials.”
“Our sustainability mission does not stop at our products, either,” Caluza adds. “QNET is dedicated towards this cause as we want to make a positive impact in the lives of our people, the communities in which we operate, and the environment. Our goal is to ensure that all our brand merchandise is sourced ethically and packaged in sustainable materials by 2025.”
