Two Diamond Experts Discuss Corporate Ethics
The Balancing Act is joined by Karen Rentmeesters of Antwerp World Diamond Centre and Lucara CEO Eira Thomas to discuss corporate global responsibility in diamond mining.
Lucara is a diamond mining company that is known for its ethical practices—a great testament to the progress made in eliminating the once-epidemic problem of conflict diamonds.

Lucara also makes direct contributions through the Lundin Foundation, a prominent Canadian nonprofit.
