Gemfields has a fully integrated approach to sustainability and corporate responsibility (“SCR”) initiatives across the Group. Gemfields prides itself on being a responsible and recognised leader regarding legitimacy, transparency and integrity within the coloured-gemstone mining sector and beyond into the downstream supply chain. Gemfields’ SCR programme of work is not confined to localised community, conservation and HSE (health, safety and environment) projects at our operations, but covers a range of associated issues; from human rights, to product disclosure, to government or industry relations.

This Report describes how Gemfields Group Limited (“Gemfields”) and the group of entities controlled by Gemfields has actively implemented the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (“VPs”), at both Group level and at its mining operations. This report covers the Group’s activity as a VPs Engaged Company through 2019 and 2020 and references some activity in the early part of 2021.
