Guido Grassi Damiani is the new President of Italian group Assogemme’s colored stones Ethical Committee.
“We welcome Mr. Damiani with great enthusiasm and profound esteem,” said the President of Assogemme, Paolo Cesari.
“We will work with him as a team and with great synergy, promoting and activating a dialogue between all the players in the supply chain of the Italian jewelry system with particular attention to solutions that can concretely enhance Italian manufacturing and contribute to the development of the traceability in the supply chain of colored gemstones.”
The committee’s guiding principles are the establishment and adoption of socially responsible practices within the gemstones supply chain in the jewelry system and the consequent application of these principles to all companies and operators in the jewelry sector.
“It is an honour and a great responsibility for me to be appointed President of Assogemme’s Ethical Committee: a virtuous organization that since 2007 has aimed to raise awareness, guarantee and enhance ethics, transparency and respect for people and environment, in the gem sector,” said Guido Grassi Damiani.
“The debate on the ethical dimension is not a passing fad and it absolutely must not be perceived as such: it is a real essential necessity in the world of jewelry to which all actors are invited to reflect and act in conformity.”
