SCS Names Brandee Dallow VP of Sustainability for Luxury Goods
The industry veteran will help the company expand its certification programs for the fine jewelry, accessories, and apparel industries.
The company develops programs for third-party environmental and sustainability veriﬁcation, certiﬁcation, auditing, testing, and standards development.
In her new role, Dallow will support the international expansion of SCS’s certification programs for the fine jewelry, accessories, and apparel industries.
Among these is the SCS-007 Sustainability Rated Diamond Standard, its first set of sustainability standards for the jewelry sector.
As the founder and president of Fine Girl Luxury Brand Building & Communications, Dallow has been creating marketing communications initiatives for luxury brands for more than two decades.
Most recently, she was the regional membership, business development, and engagement lead for the Responsible Jewellery Council in North America, working with members as they moved toward a more responsible business model.

SCS said Dallow is particularly skilled at managing complex projects with multiple stakeholders, adding these skills which will be vital in her new role at the company.
