BURMA: OUR POSITION
October 5, 2007
- In accordance with our commitment to continuous improvement, Cartier has stopped buying gemstones which may have been mined in Burma (Myanmar) - wherever those stones have been cut and exported from - until further notice.
- Cartier has issued instructions to this effect to its suppliers, requesting that they confirm on all relevant shipments that the gemstones provided have not been mined in Burma.
- Cartier conducts random gemmological analyses on gemstone shipments in order to evaluate the credibility of suppliers’ claims as to the origin of the stones provided.
