Major Jewelry Retailer Joins PPA
Jul 13, 2018
We are pleased to announce the membership of the PPA’s first jewelry retailer, Signet Jewelers. Signet joins current PPA private sector members representing supply chains of the electronic, automotive, and aerospace industry based in North America, Europe, and Asia.
David Bouffard, Vice President of Corporate Affairs, explained that Signet Jewelers is “committed to supporting communities beyond the regions where we have sales operations. This includes supporting the development of sourcing of conflict-free gold and diamonds from high-risk, artisanal and small-scale mining sources. We are very pleased to be part of PPA’s efforts in these areas.”
We look forward to working with Signet and exploring additional linkages to the jewelry and gold sectors as part of PPA’s work to support responsible minerals trade in the Great Lakes Region.
