Metals & Minerals

Metals and minerals extraction has its risks to businesses. To mitigate these risks and preserve their reputation, many businesses certify their metal and mineral supply chain and production processes.

The metals and minerals industry is heavily scrutinised, pushing companies to prove their ethical business practices at all stages of production. Responsible sourcing and supply chain monitoring are key to preserving natural resources and ensuring safe, fair labour practices.

Bureau Veritas is able to provide Metals & Minerals Certification against a number of ethical methodologies and standards including:

LBMA: Protecting precious metals

The London Bullion Markets Association (LBMA) is a respected standard for precious metal sourcing. The LBMA Good Delivery and Responsible Sourcing programs ensure that precious metals are ethically extracted, sourced and traded. With certification from Bureau Veritas, companies can prove responsible sourcing and supply chain best practices for precious metals.

RJC: Committing to responsible jewellery production

The Responsible Jewellery Council sets social and environmental standards for the entire jewellery value chain, from mining to retail. Companies can be certified by Bureau Veritas to two standards: Code of Practices (for responsible business practices) and Chain of Custody (for responsible sourcing and supply chain due diligence).

RGMP: assuring ethical gold mining practices

The Responsible Gold Mining Principles (RGMP) developed by the World Gold Council provides a guide for stakeholders to the key elements of responsible gold mining across the mine life cycle. Bureau Veritas delivers assurance against the requirements of the 10 Umbrella Principles (51 Principles articulated around Governance, Social and Environmental elements).

ASI: Ensuring safe aluminium sourcing

The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) promotes continuous improvement in the environmental and social impact of aluminium production, use and recycling. By adopting ASI standards, companies can demonstrate responsible aluminium sourcing practices, improve sustainability performance and promote consumer and stakeholder confidence. Bureau Veritas is among the few certification bodies worldwide to offer accredited certification to ASI.
