Joint call to industry - engage with ASM

Call to action

In line with our Responsible Sourcing Strategy encouraging responsible engagement with Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM), LBMA has joined a call to action urging the gold and jewellery industry to include ASM in their sourcing policies and practices.

The ASM sector employs approximately 42 million people, with more than 150 million people worldwide depend on mining to make a living. The greatest opportunity for the gold and jewellery industry to generate positive economic, social and environmental impact is to support artisanal and small-scale miners that are committed to reducing or eliminating mercury-use, joining the formal sector, and conforming to other responsible practices.
