Fairtrade and Fairmined Gold is a Partnership between Fairtrade Labelling Organizations
International (FLO) and The Alliance for Responsible Mining Foundation (ARM). The Partnership
for Fairtrade and Fairmined Gold is planned and executed under a single work programme
encompassing operations of FLO and its members and ARM. This programme is strategically
guided and monitored by a joint ARM/ FLO Gold Steering Group (GSG).
ARM and FLO have jointly set the Gold standard for responsible artisanal and small-scale mining
(ASM). ARM supports and enables producers to deliver “fairmined” certified metals and minerals
through economically just supply chains to the markets, in order to contribute towards the
transformation of ASM into a socially and environmentally responsible activity, and to the
improvement of the quality of life of marginalized artisanal miners, their families and communities.
FLO unites the producer-facing activities of ARM with the market- and business-facing activities
within the Fairtrade Labelling system. FLO promotes the empowerment of Fairtrade-certified
producers by supporting them in capitalizing on market opportunities; and facilitates global
Fairtrade markets, to optimise benefits for producers.
The Global Product Manager for Fairtrade and Fairmined Gold (GPM) oversees delivery of this
programme. The GPM reports into the Head of Global Product Management of FLO or the
Executive Director of ARM dependent on geographic location1. In either reporting case, the GPM
will seek guidance from the Operational Team which is composed of the Head of Global Product
Management of FLO and the Executive Director of ARM; and is responsible to the Gold Steering
Group (GSG) in regards to delivering on the strategy set out by the Group.
The key objective is to coordinate the Fairtrade and Fairmined Gold strategy amongst the different
actors and stakeholders in the Fairtrade and ARM systems with the focus on growth of markets and
maximization of the impact of Fairtrade on ASM gold producers worldwide. The GPM will liaise
closely with the Fairtrade Labeling Initiatives who promote Fairtrade Gold in their respective
markets; the ARM producers and Producer Networks representing Latin America, Africa, and Asia;
other key stakeholders and experts in Gold; and the internal units within FLO and ARM.. All of
these interactions and coordination will be essential in devising and implementing a global Fairtrade
and Fairmined Gold strategy.
