Leading Diamond Company Successfully Clears Its Name from NACP’s List of International War Sponsors
LEADING DIAMOND COMPANY SUCCESSFULLY CLEARS ITS NAME FROM NACP’S LIST OF INTERNATIONAL WAR SPONSORS
18th October 2023
Shree Ramkrishna Exports Pvt. Ltd. (SRK), the renowned diamond industry leader, is pleased to announce that its name has been officially removed from the website of Ukraine’s National Agency of Corruption Prevention (NACP)
Transparency, integrity, and ethical conduct have always been at the heart of SRK’s operations. SRK exclusively sources rough diamonds from countries actively participating in the Kimberley Process, while ensuring certified origins free from conflicts. The company has refrained from buying any rough diamonds from sources within Russia that are subject to international sanctions, starting in January 2023. This decision aligns with SRK’s Rough Sourcing policy, which emphasizes responsible and ethical sourcing.
The global diamond industry leader also takes care to adhere to both national and international guidelines, complying with regulations from the United Nations, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and other relevant authorities. SRK firmly supports the cause of peace and is committed to participating in initiatives driven by the Group of Seven (G7) and India, through the Gems and Jewellery Export Council (GJEPC), to ensure responsible diamond trade.
The company, which deeply believes and upholds the Indian ethos of “Vasudev Kutumbakam,” signifying “One Earth, One Family, One Future”, has even pledged to follow the established procedures for handling Russian diamonds as determined by the G7 in collaboration with the Government of India. More details about SRK’s principles can be found at this link. However, it’s worth noting that according to NACP, SRK is the largest diamond company in the world.
“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the NACP for their constructive assessment, which has led to the removal of our company from the list of war sponsors. Thank you for your support,” said Dr. Nirav Mandir, Chief Human Capital Officer (CHCO), SRK. “We at SRK emphasize our dedication to peace and harmony. We do not endorse or support any form of war or conflict anywhere in the world. Our business ethos is grounded in promoting goodwill, nurturing positive relationships, and upholding the highest standards of corporate and social responsibility.”
