Our AW/21 collection Fables will be the first Alex Monroe collection to be plated using licensed Fairmined gold - an accredited standard which means that we are supporting responsibly managed community mines.
Between 2006 and 2008, the Alliance for Responsible Mining led a multi-stakeholder process in Latin America to develop a collective vision and principles for responsible artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM). This led to the development of the Standard Zero, the world’s pioneering standard for responsibly mined gold and associated silver. In 2009, based on the Standard Zero, the first version of the Fairmined Standard was developed in partnership with Fairtrade.
In 2009, based on the Standard Zero, the first version of the Fairmined Standard was developed in partnership with Fairtrade.
In April 2014, after a transparent revision process with open forums involving a broad range of stakeholders including the whole supply chain, version 2.0 of the Fairmined Standard was released. The Fairmined Standard has been received by the miners, the gold industry, governments, and civil society as a robust and credible standard.
