UL Hosts 'Responsible Sourcing In The Jewelry Industry' Conference

UL held a conference on ‘Responsible Sourcing In The Jewelry Industry’ in New York City in November.

Presenters spoke about how increased legislation and consumer awareness compels companies to assure that minerals and other raw materials used in their products originate from ethical sources. They also addressed how some retailers, like those under the Signet banner, demand greater accountability and require auditing from their suppliers.

Speakers included David Bouffard, Vice President, Corporate Affairs of Signet Jewelers, Patricia Syvrud, Executive Director of the World Gold Council, and Fred Waelter, Global Business Lead, Responsible Sourcing, UL.
