Fairmined: Supporting Small-Scale Artisanal Mines, Promoting Responsible Practices
Since our founding in 2013, London DE has put environmental responsibility and ethical sourcing at the forefront of its business model. We joined Fairmined in 2020 to keep pushing this value and continue to thrive within its membership.
Fairmined is an assurance label which certifies gold from empowered responsible artisanal and small-scale mining organisations. It is changing the mining industry to be an active force of good with responsibility, ensuring social development and environmental protection. Those who buy gold under the Fairmined membership are assured that they are supporting responsibly managed community mines.
Fairmined stands for those jewellers or traders who wish to make a positive impact within the industry. We receive our gold from these mines under strict traceability requirements and ensures flexible business-to-business models for sustainability reporting.
