We will also be sharing stories of our community engagement initiatives, which directly tie in with aspects of fair trade and ethical manufacturing. The FACETS event itself is an example of sustainability-driven execution. From reuse of displays to reductions in material wastage and digitizing marketing efforts, we are continuously evolving the event to become a regional trendsetter: The entire value chain: mine to market and exhibition shifting to a platform of sustainability is possibly a first for a source country, an achievement the SLGJA and the entire gem industry of Sri Lanka is proud to share with the rest of the world
