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.
The benefits of ethically mined diamonds are far-reaching; responsible mining companies directly impact local communities and contribute positively to global economics.
Lucara and other reputable diamond producers make significant contributions to local and global communities through royalties, taxes, direct and indirect employment, socioeconomic capacity building and community investment. Lucara also makes direct contributions through the Lundin Foundation, a prominent Canadian nonprofit.
