Our

mission

We bring awareness and responsible practices to the key actors in the gold industry regarding the social and environmental harm generated by customary gold mining practices. We present the challenges and the overall benefits of responsible gold mining. To create a sustainable and traceable eco-responsible gold sector for the benefit of each actor in the industry, from the miner through to the end-consumer.

Our mission is aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
