The Kimberley Process
In Action

81 governments have enshrined the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme (KPCS) into law. Today, 99,8% of the world’s diamonds come from conflict-free sources. However, as even a single conflict diamond is one too many, the international diamond industry continues to work with governments, NGOs and the UN to strengthen the Kimberley Process and its system of warranties.
