Fairtrade Gold provides an independent auditing and certification process to ensure a responsible supply chain. In 2018 their global sales reached $12.1 million, with sales estimated to reach $16.8 million in 2019. International Jewellery London (IJL) is the pre-eminent annual destination for the best of British fine jewellery, as well as leading brands from around the globe.

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.
