FAIRMINED gold is ethical gold extracted by Artisanal and Small-scale miners certified under the FAIRMINED standard. Buying FAIRMINED metals is supporting responsible certified miners and their families that follow strict requirements for social development, environmental protection, labor conditions and economic development in their mining communities.
FAIRMINED gold is the achievement of the world’s pioneering and industry leading network of responsible Artisanal and Small-scale miners. An initiative and movement lead by and for the miners.
Chopard’s Journey to a Sustainable Luxury has started in 2013 when launching, under the influence of Livia Firth, founder of the Green Carpet Challenge and creative Director of Eco-Age, its first Green Carpet Collection with the use of Fairmined Gold.
