HOW FAIRMINED WORKS

What do you picture when you think of a gold mine?

Do you picture proud, capable miners, thriving communities and environmental protection? 

Because those are the symbols that Fairmined stands for – pride, community, humanity and responsibility; and it is with these goals that we, together with the gold industry, want to make a change in the small-scale mining sector.

Fairmined is an assurance label that certifies gold from small-scale mining organizations embracing responsible mining and business practices.  It provides you with easy access to gold to be proud of, where positive social and environmental impact become part of the story behind gold.

The value of gold should be measured by more than its weight. Look beyond style and beauty to become a part of the ethical transformation of your industry.

who support the development of small-scale mining as part of their corporate social responsibility.

Know the origin of your gold

Mitigate reputational risks

while enhancing your economic, social and environmental impact.

HOW TO START?

Start progressively. You don’t have to switch your total production to Fairmined, but can start with specific products, a category, collection or simply a part of your production.

Becoming a Fairmined licensed brand or authorized supplier is compatible with other initiatives, such as RJC certification.

The gold market has the power to drive the positive transformation of artisanal and small-scale mining.

JEWELRY, LUXURY AND ELECTRONIC BRANDS, MINTS AND BANKS

If you source gold to create consumer products such as jewelry, coins, medals, bars, prizes or electronics, you have a great opportunity to add value to your products by assuring their responsible origin while generating a positive impact in mining communities.

REFINERS, CASTERS, TRADERS AND MANUFACTURERS.

If you buy and sell gold, you have the opportunity to mitigate your reputational risks while offering your customers traceable, certified metals that perfectly fit in their responsible sourcing strategies.
