Gold With Heart, introduced by David Finlay
Fairtrade Gold is more than just gold, it’s gold with heart; promising a range of benefits for mining communities, the environment and gold-buying businesses. But what do these benefits look like in practice? And what first steps can businesses take to benefit from a relationship with Fairtrade and small-scale mining communities? This talk is designed to answer these questions as well as point towards the future direction of travel for Fairtrade Gold – in the UK and beyond.
