Swiss watchmaking body Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) has become an official supporter of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC).
FHH said that aligning itself with the RJC, which is focused on promoting ethical practices in the jewellery and watch industries, is a natural move for the group as it is dedicated to promoting “transparent business endeavours”.
FHH president and managing director Fabienne Lupo said: “Backed by 27 partner brands, FHH is recognised as a global think tank for the watchmaking profession, with a mission to inform, educate, train and lead the fight against counterfeiting.
“The FHH is dedicated to defending the abiding values which have carried beautiful timepieces through the centuries. Only adherence to ethical values and responsible behavior will justify why we make these extraordinary timepieces and most importantly why they are bought by thousands of people around the world. This is why supporting the RJC is of particular importance to the FHH, its partner brands and admirers of fine watchmaking around the world.”
