Zircon Industry Association, 24 Old Bond Street, Mayfair, London W1S 4AP, UK


ZIA and its members take our responsibilities seriously, not only in the way that we conduct our activities, strictly in accordance with our Code of Conduct but in the wider sense of good corporate citizenship.

Membership Values

The Zircon Industry Association has published Membership Values that serve to embed and continuously promote best practice throughout the industry. These values will ensure that all ZIA members, the association and the zircon industry as a whole evolves sustainably, responsibly and with integrity.

From 2022 all ZIA members will be required to make an annual declaration confirming compliance with these values. For those wanting to join ZIA, their commitment to these values will be a prerequisite of membership.

ZIA has published a series of case studies highlighting the work of our members and how it aligns with the ZIA values.
