About the Awards

Jewellery World Awards (JWA) is among the most respected programmes in the jewellery and gemstone community. It acknowledges the trailblazers, game changers, up-and-comers and luminaries of the industry.

Formerly known as JNA Awards, and established by Informa Markets Jewellery in 2012, JWA honours innovation, best business practices and excellence, regardless of the scale of business operations, area of specialisation and geographical location.

Sustainability Awards 2024 by JWA celebrates fine jewellery and gemstone enterprises that have demonstrated exceptional commitment to advancing the environmental, equality, inclusivity and innovation agenda within a business context in the last three years (2021 – 2023).

To be eligible for the Awards, candidates must provide compelling evidence demonstrating the successful implementation and tangible results of their sustainability initiatives within the specified period. These encompass a diverse range of practices embracing sustainability, such as environmentally conscious manufacturing processes, responsible sourcing, innovative technologies and solutions, diversity and inclusion, and local community empowerment, among others.

The nominees must provide information proving that the results achieved through these initiatives are measurable, scalable and/or replicable.

The Awards programme recognises achievements

1. Environmental Stewardship Award: Nature Conservation and Regeneration

2. Social Empowerment Award: Advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

3. Manufacturing Innovation Award: Technological Advancement and Sustainable Operations

4. Community Engagement Award: Fostering Local Sustainability
