Next Steps

The delivery of the Strategy is overseen by the LBMA Board and Executive Committee. LBMA will convene Independent Stakeholder Advisory Groups to provide input on the approach moving forward and to help to continue to identify priority issues and trends, and it commits itself to report on progress (annually) towards meeting the objectives, actions, and deliverables outlined herein.

Three-year priorities

LBMA has identified four focus areas for action, which are directly related to LBMA’s core business areas:

  • Responsible sourcing
  • Artisanal small-scale mining (ASM)
  • Gold value chain
  • Own contribution

In addition, there is a fifth focus area that identifies cross-cutting issues that support and enable further business actions. These issues include:

  • Climate
  • Biodiversity
  • Other UN Sustainable Development Goals.
