This award recognises young companies that are playing a leading role in driving innovation in sustainability with clear purpose beyond profit – demonstrating quantifiable positive impact and holistic commitment across all three pillars of ESG best practice.
“Less than a year old and with fewer than 10 employees at the time of application, Tracemark is a company I want to see succeed – for the good of the jewellery and diamond industry, its consumers, and Tracemark’s founders who spent over two years developing their Transparent Tracking System software. Not only does the tool leverage technology to provide robust traceability and verified standards, it also cleverly connects today’s consumers to the product, materials and manufacturing through their Traceability Panel, educating and empowering them to make informed purchasing decisions. The industry has a deservedly tarnished reputation, particularly with the arena of human rights, but it is an innovator like Tracemark that will drive tangible positive action and help restore consumer confidence in the jewellery industry. Traceability tools are currently very much focussed on the fashion industry, but consumers deserve transparency across all categories of goods and services. I am thrilled the judging panel acknowledged this and, among a very strong shortlist, recognised Tracemark.”
