Better Gold

What is Better Gold?

The SBGA offers a pioneering network of industry, finance and other service providers which support the creation of responsible gold value chains from mine to market.

The approach chosen by the SBGA is to:

  • Accept only metal originating from accredited responsible ASGM sources
  • Achieve shorter supply chains and facilitate direct exports for ASGM producers
  • Mobilise actors along the supply chain to establish & improve efficiency of these
  • Promote environmental and social improvements locally through the Better Gold Fund (BGF)
  • Identify specific projects funded by members that allow faster ASGM operations’ improvement
