In June 2012, the UN Global Compact Local Networks Europe released the report- The European UN Global Compact Companies Towards Rio+20 and Beyond: A Best Practices Collection - to showcase 100 best practice examples across 20 countries that are implementing sustainable development initiatives and programs to help advance the Rio+20 agenda. SAI Corporate Member Rosy Blue Diamonds contributed to the report with the chapter, "Sustainability in the Supply Chain: A Responsibility and an Opportunity."

The chapter highlights its partnerships with the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), the UN Global Compact and SAI to advance its supply chain sustainability goals. In one of its four 'lessons learned,' Rosy Blue noted that its "partnerships with initiatives such as SAI for our factories has given us a better understanding of integrating labor standards in the value chain."

The chapter includes its experience with its SA8000 certified factory in Thailand to guarantee decent work conditions [a case study of this factory's journey was also highlighted in SAI's 2012 joint report with the UNGC and CIPE.]
