The Cleaner Gold Network is an alliance of consumers, scientists, artists, educators, indigenous communities, NGOs, and companies from the gold sector, engaging in a multi-initiative approach to raise awareness and promote solutions for illicit and unregulated gold mining in the Amazon.
The Cleaner Gold Network is based on the principles of human rights, science, transparency, support for democratic participation, and respect for the sovereign rights of Amazon region countries over territories and natural resources, including the sustainable use and development of those resources, as recognized by international law.
Our primary goal is to protect the rainforest by creating cleaner gold and a more responsible supply chain from the ground to the consumer. The Cleaner Gold Network’s initiatives include awareness, consumer change, industry engagement, and policy reform.
Cleaner Gold means safe, mercury-free practices that protect both people and the environment from harm.
Cleaner Gold is regulated, and responsibly sourced.
Cleaner Gold supports local populations without exploitation and without intrusion upon protected and indigenous territories.
Cleaner Gold means strengthening national and international policy and enforcement to prevent the exportation and importation of illegally sourced gold.
