Our ESG compliance matters
As your refiner, we recognise our attention to environmental, safety and governance compliance is important to producers.
We are committed to meeting the Western Australian Government’s 2050 target for net zero emissions. We are working towards achieving this goal as quickly as possible, working with suppliers and other stakeholders to accelerate this time frame.
We are committed to the wellbeing of our people and to the communities in which we operate. Our priorities include ethical supply chains and the safety and wellbeing of our employees and stakeholders.
The Perth Mint is committed to creating an authentic and transparent marketplace for all commercial and consumer goods.
We also ensure our supply chain due diligence systems and procedures are compliant with the responsible gold and silver guidelines presented by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
Ethically sourced gold and silver
Maintaining integrity throughout the supply chain is our highest priority. We ensure gold and silver passing through our refinery is from trustworthy sources and certified under the international Conflict-Free Smelter Program.
Responsible metals and supply chain policy
As part of our commitment to sourcing ethically responsible metals, we have established a policy based on these principles:
- Know your customer
- Anti-money laundering
- Combating terrorism financing.
Audits confirm compliance
An annual audit is also undertaken by a third-party auditor to ensure compliance with the LBMA and OECD standards. Refer to the following for historical Summary Assessment Reports with full details of the audits:
