Responsible Sourcing of ASM Materials: From Risk to Opportunity

Susannah McLaren, Compliance & Responsible Sourcing Manager, LBMA; Joanne Lebert, Executive Director, IMPACT; Luke Fiske, PhD Candidate, Queen's University.

Susannah McLaren, LBMA's Compliance & Responsible Sourcing Manager, Joanne Lebert, Executive Director at IMPACT and Luke Fiske, PhD Candidate at Smith School of Business, Queen's University discussed how the discourse of risk is perceived and how this can be detrimental to artisanal and small scale mining (ASM).

Joanne and Luke enlighten us on IMPACT's initiative 'Just Gold' in Côte d'Ivoire and the DRC and provide suggestions on how to positively redirect the perception of risk. They also look at what can be done to encourage engagement with ASM in order to ensure it is a viable option in the supply chain.
