Current donors and allies

In the Alliance for Responsible Mining we are constantly building collaborative relationships with a diverse array of allies from around the world in order to support and generate positive and lasting change in the ASM sector.

We are proud to have worked with a wide-variety of world-renowned organizations from different geographic areas over the past few years.

These collaborations have laid the groundwork for the projects we have undertaken with ASM miners and their communities. These relationships have also given us a valuable insight into how we can work with various partners and provide vital support to the ASM sector.

Bilateral and multilateral patrons

The Senior Supervisor of the project congratulates ARM and its team for the excellent management of the program, its quality, rigorousness and the accumulated results to date. This not just allowed ARM to comply with the agreed and set indicators, but even exceed the objectives for the majority of activities within the logic framework.”  Carlos Novoa, Senior Specialist BID/FOMIN

The Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation supports financially in Colombia to identify artisanal and small-scale mining organizations  with the potential to achieve the Fairmined Certification; to perform the corresponding gap analysis; to define action plans for improving mining practices, and to accompany the artisanal mining organizations to achieve the Fairmined certification.

Private Sector

We work together with private sector organizations such as jewellers, electronics companies, mints, as well as the financial sector. There are many ways that companies can get involved in our work, such as:

Financing projects to support mining communities that are working towards their Fairmined Certification or the formalization of their mining practices

Among others, the organization can rely on the support of jewellery sector companies such as Chopard and currently with the support of Microsoft in Peru.

There are more and more private companies in the jewellery, electronics and financial sectors committed to the purchase of Fairmined Gold. Fairmined currently has a network of more than 130 licensees present on 21 countries.
