The World Gold Council launched the Responsible Gold Mining Principles (RGMPs) in September 2019 following extensive consultation about their content with investors, governments, NGOs and supply chain actors. The RGMPs provide a framework for the management of environmental, social and governance issues and are subject to independent assurance at both a corporate and site level. The Principles constitute an industry standard and provide assurance to investors and to gold refiners in conducting due diligence. 

About the webinar

The webinar took place on 24 of March 2021 and was conducted in English with simultaneous translation to Russian.

The webinar provides an opportunity to brief Russian gold miners and refiners on the content of the Principles and what is involved in their implementation and in obtaining independent assurance. It will involve input from both the World Gold Council and implementing companies. 

You can find presentation slides under the video in the speakers’ profiles.
