LBMA Responsible Gold Guidance
The LBMA is a membership organisation for companies in the precious metals supply chain.
It established the Responsible Gold Guidance for Good Delivery Refiners to combat human rights abuses, to avoid conflict financing in the gold supply chain, to ensure compliance with high standards of anti-money laundering and to combat terrorist financing. The Guidance follows the approach of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas, which the LBMA participated in developing.
The Guidance also recognises the increasing importance of strong corporate governance generally, and companies' environmental and sustainability responsibilities.
