Fair Trade

FairtradeNeuMärz

How do you ensure "Fair Trade" manufacturing? If your manufacturing or the manufacturing company you work with is certified, please list these certifications.

JEM is the first French craft jeweler to be engaged in the « Fairmined » industry. Unlike other forms of uncontrolled gold panning, this mining industry is legal, organized by and for the miners themselves, in a cooperative-style management. It respects the environment, human rights, international labor regulations, and applies Fairtrade standards. Fairmined audits and certifies the mining organisations, but also every player of the chain controlling the use of it gold and the respect of its traceability. JEM is Fairmined certified, and audited each year.

Social Justice

How do you ensure "Social Justice" with your internal and external corporate environment?

Fairmined Gold mining provides a rewarding labor environment, with decent working conditions and fair wages. Fairmined contributes to the growth of local economy, reduces poverty and corruption (money laundering, weapon funding).

Eco/Tech Material

Which "Eco/Tech Material" do you work with? What makes this material sustainable? And what makes it better compared to conventional material?
