VOICES FOR THE AMAZON

AMAZON AID FOUNDATION’S
CLEAN GOLD CAMPAIGN

Clean Gold Network Purpose

Complex problem-solving requires deep collaboration between stakeholders that may often find themselves at odds with each other rather than collaborating to solve a common challenge. Amazon Aid Foundation is convening the Clean Gold Network to ensure that when it comes to protecting the Amazon from illicit and unregulated gold mining the right people are working together.

How might we create a responsible and clean supply chain for gold that
improves our ability to protect the Amazon and its people now, while embracing the long-term goal of working in the Amazon sustainably and without harm to its living systems?

The Clean Gold Network’s ultimate purpose is to stand in solidarity to reform and produce sustainable systems from the ground to consumers that increase awareness, transparency, and action aimed at protecting the Amazon. To get there is a long, winding road known for its complexity and diverse interests, but we must try. Circular systems for materials traditionally extracted from the earth will become a necessity in the future and the Clean Gold Campaign emphasizes efforts to address systemic solutions in the short and long term.
