AMAZON AID FOUNDATION’S
Clean Gold Campaign for Industry
Taking Steps to Solve the Problem
Illicit and unregulated gold mining is one for the most destructive man-made causes of deforestation in the Amazon. Awareness and collaboration will be key for developing solutions.
Make Clean Gold the true Gold Standard.
Our future depends on it.
Clean Gold means safe mercury free practices that protect both people and the environment from harm. Clean Gold is legally and responsibly sourced. Clean gold supports local populations without exploitation and without intrusion upon protected and indigenous territories.
For the first time, Amazon Aid’s Clean Gold Campaign for Industry will bring together scientists, educators, NGOs and companies from the gold sector to take clear steps to protect the Amazon and improve the gold supply chain globally.
The campaign is designed to engage and problem solve to address the significant issues we face today to ensure that the gold we use does not irreparably harm the environment and the people who work in it.
The Clean Gold Campaign is open to upstanders of various disciplines and backgrounds to stand in solidarity and engage in a solutions-driven hub that connects multi-stakeholders to take action. Amazon Aid understands the complexities we face in producing cleanly sourced gold, but for those who want to be better, we know that together we can overcome obstacles to move the needle-even if it seems small at first.
The Clean Gold Campaign stands in solidarity with movements in the US, the Amazon region, and around the world to counter racism and exploitation in all forms.
The Clean Gold Campaign for industry is comprised of two interconnected initiatives:
1.The Clean Gold Network
Join Civil Society in Solidarity to Promote a Clean Supply Chain for Gold
2. The Clean Gold Commitment
