We are proud of the positive impact our precious metal products have. The modern life enjoyed by all today would not be possible without them. Therefore, we have a duty to realize their potential as responsibly as possible.
As impressive as precious metals are, they do also have drawbacks. The huge demand for precious metals cannot nearly be covered by recycling, so mining is indispensable. However, their extraction and processing are very energy- and carbon-intensive and can adversely impact workers, nature, and nearby communities. That is why we work tirelessly to maximize the benefits of precious metals for people and the planet while steadily reducing their negative impact.
We are convinced that our industry can make a successful transition toward sustainability, but we can only achieve this by working together: from miners to refiners, processors, and users of precious metals. Our aim is to lead by example and to propel positive change in our industry. We set rigorous standards for our own business and actively encourage the adoption of similar standards along the entire value chain.
