CAFOD in ethical jewellery drive

CAFOD has persuaded supporters to send more than 2,000 e-mails to top executives at Argos and Goldsmiths, urging them to change the way they operate.

The charity is campaigning to get UK companies to sign up to a sourcing policy to stop the use of ‘dirty gold’ as part of its ongoing ‘Unearth Justice’ campaign.

It is using the trade press and grassroots pressure to urge companies to sign up to 12 golden rules for human rights and environmental standards.

UK jewellers Beaverbrooks, F. Hinds and Fraser Hart have already signed up. But Argos and Goldsmiths have been named as the ‘missing links’.
