INDUSTRY TRANSFORMATION

Be part of the change

Sign up to take the industry pledge and engage with the Cleaner Gold Network.

WHAT INDUSTRY CAN DO

By “industry,” we mean any entity that mines, processes, refines, or purchases gold for manufacturing, or sells gold in any form––i.e: jewelry, technology, and banking.

JOIN THE CLEANER GOLD NETWORK AND BECOME PART OF an interconnected network to address challenges by harnessing knowledge and experience equity, innovation, financial investment, and reinvestment, advocacy and more to become part of the solution to promote responsible gold sourcing. Because we know that we all want to be better and that together we can overcome obstacles to move the needle – even if it seems small at first.

THE NETWORK IS COMING TOGETHER TO urge companies to:

  1. Publicly recognize that gold mined from illegal sources is an industry-wide problem.
  2. Commit to knowing where your gold comes from.
  3. Commit to responsibly sourcing gold from the ASGM sector.
  4. Strengthen the ASGM sector: promote mercury-free gold and forest-smart mining technologies, land recovery initiatives, and ASGM implementation programs.
  5. Support policy reform.

The Cleaner Gold Network recognizes that until there are equitable and sustainable economic opportunities available across the Amazon and beyond, ASGM is an important economic solution for impoverished peoples. Formalization and regulation of ASGM and the supply chain will be key for creating less damage to the environment, support land recovery efforts and provide technology designed to keep the miners safe. Industry engagement is key for transforming the industry to protect ecosystems and peoples.
