Amazon Gold Working Group

Complex political, social and economic factors have long stifled progress on addressing the negative impacts of gold mining in the Amazon. We are here to foster collaboration along the entire gold value chain to meet this urgent need.

Gold mining is one of the most damaging and least understood problems facing the Amazon.

Complex political, social and economic factors have long stifled progress on addressing the negative impacts of gold mining. We are here to foster collaboration along the entire gold value chain to meet this urgent need.

Our Solution: The Amazon Gold Working Group.

Since 2009, Amazon Aid has established itself as a thought leader and global communications advocate on gold. Now we are leveraging relationships and deep knowledge to lead an exciting collaborative innovation network, focused specifically on systems change along the gold supply chain.

Amazon Aid is the only group that is convening stakeholders—from partner organizations to Indigenous leaders, from industry experts to end-use retailers, from local legislators to international policymakers—to identify and launch strategic actions that will clean up the gold supply chain. As our founder always says, “Failure is not an option.”

The values that guide our work honor human rights, science, transparency, democratic participation, and recognition and respect for the rights of Indigenous people and local communities.

Amazon Aid is on a mission to preserve and protect the rainforest for the health of the entire planet.
