We expect our suppliers to ensure safe and fair working conditions.
Mining and processing of gold follow high ethical, ecological and social standards. It is essential for the philoro GROUP that the mines comply with the respective national laws and the guidelines of the OECD, the LBMA and that they demonstrate a transparent supply chain. Through extensive audits, we ensure that all precious metals come from socially and ethically acceptable sources and that the legal requirements are met.
We are aware of our responsibility and therefore support institutions, organisations and projects in the areas of culture, science and business and sports.
Furthermore, we fund charitable, social and humanitarian projects with financial and in-kind donations and sponsoring. These must always be appropriate, transparent and in accordance with applicable law. All donations and sponsoring activities are only permitted within the framework of the applicable internal guidelines.
Consequently, mine operators must prove that they meet the certified environmental and social criteria. We work hard to ensure that our impact on the environment and health is kept to a minimum. We achieve this by reducing waste and emissions, using energy efficiently, minimising occupational health risks and producing sustainable products.
