CIBJO, Vicenza fair to launch web-based CSR compliance system
VICENZA, ITALY, January, 2015 – CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, and Vicenza fair have announced that they will launch the jewellery industry’s first web-based Corporate Social Responsibility compliance system at the VIZENZAORO January show in Vicenza, Italy.
The system was developed by Branded Trust Assurance Systems.
The launch was scheduled to take place at 2:00 PM on Sunday, January 25, in Pavilion 7.1, Room 7.1.2b, at Vicenza fair, and to be followed by a seminar entitled “Social Responsibility as the New Reality: Best Practice Initiatives, Tools and Business Success.”
The CIBJO-Fiera di Vicenza CSR system, powered by Branded Trust, is geared to provide practical and economic solutions to all companies in the industry seeking to achieve and manage social compliance, develop risk management policies and do social reporting.
Managed online, the Branded Trust system provides simple, effective tools that are easily managed, integrate with existing systems and bring leading businesses into compliance with the major international rule structures.
Its tools include a web-based management system that can be implemented across an organisation.
The system includes a set of policies, measures, full implementation support, education and reporting.
Branded Trust provides a certification to businesses that have achieved successful implementation.
Its second tool is an ethical market system, which allows certified business to participate in the ethical market.
Participating in ethical markets not only provides supply-chain transparency and product differentiation but reduces business risks associated with markets.
Branded Trust, which was presented last year at the United Nations in New York, is the outcome of an extended research partnership among a team of researchers, business leaders and industry associations, which led to the development of effective methods for improving business performance by combining outstanding management practice with social responsibility principles.
