Digital Tools by TDi Sustainability

Alert Index for Responsible Sourcing (AIRS)

TDi Sustainability’s Alert Index for Responsible Sourcing draws on established indices for country-level governance from a range of international organisations.

It focuses on those aspects of governance that are most relevant for companies seeking to source responsibly from each country, and indicates how effective a country’s governance environment is for supporting this goal.


The Coloured Gemstones Working Group

Managed by TDi Sustainability, the Coloured Gemstones Working Group (CGWG) – a collective of well-known jewellery makers, luxury brands and mining companies ¬– aims to bring about positive change in the responsible sourcing of coloured gemstones by providing information, tools and resources for all participants in the supply chain, from mine to end consumer.

Key online resources include a screening and due diligence tool that can be tailored to suit businesses at different places in the supply chain, and risk profiles that detail the social, environmental and governance aspects of the supply chains of popular coloured gemstones.
