The Fairmined Gold: gold to be proud of

The Fairmined Gold: gold to be proud of

What is Fairmined certification?

The Fairmined initiative was developed by the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM), a non-governmental organisation (NGO) that is recognized worldwide as a pioneer in transforming artisanal and small-scale mining into a responsible activity.

Fairmined is an insurance label that certifies gold and associated precious metals from artisanal and small-scale mining operations. The Fairmined standard supports the sustainable development of artisanal and small-scale mining communities. Although these communities produce only 15% of the world's annual gold supply, they account for 90% of the workforce in gold mining. 

Through Fairmined certification, which is supported by a rigorous system of certification and third-party auditing, miners can improve their working conditions, as well as their economic, social and environmental conditions. Fairmined gold purchases therefore support responsibly managed mines that protect the environment, provide safe working conditions and offer fair wages.

What is the purpose of Fairmined certification?

It provides an incentive for artisanal and small-scale mining organisations to become sustainable enterprises that operate in an economically, technologically and environmentally responsible manner. In addition, it facilitates access to fair markets and provides a premium for the benefit of both mining organizations and their communities, while helping to improve governance within the sector.
