We firmly believe that responsible gold mining supports sustained socio-economic development in the countries and communities where gold is found. It creates well-paid jobs, valuable tax revenues for host governments and generates sustained benefits for local communities. In addition, there is a credible pathway for the gold mining industry to decarbonise and reach net zero by 2050, in alignment with the Paris Agreement.
Gold also plays an important role in supporting technologies that enable our daily lives, as well as supporting the transition to a low carbon economy. There is increasing evidence that including gold can make investment portfolios more robust and resilient in light of climate risks.
