Gold Essentials: A new training about sustainable gold

New at Swiss Better Gold

What is the social and environmental impact of gold? The Swiss Better Gold Association introduces “Gold Essentials” unique training developed by its member the Foundation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH).

“Thanks to the FHH and to Isabelle Hildebrand for enabling this extremely interesting collaboration and giving SBGA the opportunity to contribute to this new training module. I am confident that it will find its audience and be valuable to many professionals from the watch and jewellery industry” expresses Diana Culillas, SBGA Secretary General.


    The origin of gold and its impact, existing solutions to get “clean” gold will be presented among other topics. Created for current and future watchmaking and jewelry professionals, the goal of this training is to make CSR awareness interdisciplinary. It is meant for anyone interested in the topic of gold and in its challenges, salespersons, HR, marketing and communication, CSR or production.

    “Gold Essentials” is also part of the #meaningfulwatchmovement launched by the Foundation High Horology, an invitation to all watchmaking actors to embrace and embed sustainable practices at the heart of their operations and strategies.
