The association has now grown from 14 founding members to 1,828 members worldwide by year-end 2023, in 71 countries.

It’s an exciting time to be part of the RJC, contributing to the progress of both industry and society, whilst understanding our impact on the planet. Only through collaboration and cohesion can we ensure a strong future for the companies and communities that are part of this journey. Thank you to all of you who go beyond compliance to strive for a better world.
