During the recent Gold Summitt in Vienna, Terry Hanlon, President and CEO of Dillon Gage Metals, and Ruth Crowell, CEO of the London Bullion Market Association were interviewed by Die Presse, a German-language daily broadsheet newspaper based in Vienna, Austria about sustainability in the gold industry.
Here are excerpts from Mr. Hanlon’s interview:
“‘Our company demonstrates its commitment by maintaining some of the highest environmental and safety standards in the industry.’ Dillon Gage adopted the environmental and sustainability standards for gold set up by the LBMA in 2012 and updated in recent years at an early stage. The company has enjoyed LBMA associate status since 2011. Dillon Gage also recently partnered with the Association of Responsible Mining (ARM) to become an authorized supplier of Fairmined Gold. This seal of approval certifies gold mines to use ethical, responsible, and sustainable procurement practices. “As one of the largest precious metal wholesalers in the world, we set a good example. We hope that others will follow the path we have taken within the precious metals supply chain,” said Hanlon.”
