Introduction to WJCEF

The World Jewellery Confederation Education Foundation (WJCEF) is a body established by CIBJO, with the objective of financing and administering educational programmes, formulated and prepared by CIBJO and the United Nations, to promote the principles of CSR throughout the greater jewellery industry worldwide.

The proposed purpose of these programmes is to educate members of the industry about how to engender the principles of CSR in the countries and/or constituencies in which they are active, and how to create and support initiatives at the grass-roots level through which the jewellery business assists in bringing about sustainable economic and social development.

WFCEF was formally registered In December 2008 in Berne, Switzerland.

WJCEF’s services are open to all companies and associations associated with the international jewellery business.
