Roger Dubuis and the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme
The Kimberley Process is an international certification scheme for rough diamonds that aims to avoid the use of "blood diamonds / conflict" by rebel movements to finance their military activities. PK System certification is legally binding, due to its integration into the national legislation in some 80 countries producers, processors and traders, rough diamonds can not be traded between these countries without a Kimberley certificate issued by a government confirming that the diamonds are conflict free. Roger Dubuis gets its supplies only from partners who also respect the system to ensure the legitimacy of our diamonds.
Boycotting precious stones from Myanmar
There are currently no international regulations for precious stones. However, in 2007, the international community strongly condemned Myanmar, asking the jewelry industry to boycott precious stones exported by this country, in particular rubies, sapphires and jade. Roger Dubuis joined this boycott and has purchased no stones from Myanmar since 2007.
A shared Code of Conduct
Roger Dubuis is committed to ensuring his honesty and integrity in the conduct of its business operations. That’s why we ask suppliers to prove their commitment through a Code of Conduct which lists the rules that govern our business relationships. The relationship between the company and its partners ( suppliers, contractors and strategic partners ) is based on honest and mutually beneficial fair trade practices that have a positive impact on the quality of our products and services.
Roger Dubuis uses exotic animal skins for leather bracelets. These are regulated on the international level through the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). The goal of this Convention is to ensure that the international trade of wild animal and plant species does not threaten the survival of the species to which they belong. To do this, a system of permit has been put in place. In order to be exported, imported and re-exported , skins must be accompanied by a permit issued by the competent authority of the country of departure. For Roger Dubuis, this agreement mainly concerns the marketing of watches with alligator straps.
Partnership with the IOSW
The ever-increasing demand for luxury watches translates into a growing demand for qualified craftsmen and women to service these products. To help meeting this demand, the Institute of Swiss Watchmaking was founded in 2008 by Richemont to provide dedicated, career-minded individuals with the education and training to become a part of this exciting profession. Roger Dubuis's partnership with the IOSW is a valuable complement to its training policy. The goal is to develop and maintain, on a worldwide basis, a combination of know-how and expertise in the field of high-end watchmaking that will enable the brand to offer its customers high-quality local service.
