What’s the role and the added value of a diamond company like Vijay Diamond in society? We need to continue to conduct due diligence and take responsibility for the full value chain of diamonds. This is the only way to reach sustainable luxury, as diamonds demand the highest level of ethical integrity, at every single step of their journey from mine to finger.
With the launch of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Vijay Diamond along with many other companies approach the next phase. One of the biggest new developments in 2016 has been the attempt to assess impact beyond our own operations and formalize our sustainability approach in a more mature framework.
We consult with our stakeholders both informally and formally to learn more about their key concerns, expectations and to tailor our communication channels to their needs.
Based on this feedback, we could build our maturity matrix.
