Volunteer with Alliance for Responsible Mining

Alliance for Responsible Mining

The Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) is a global pioneering initiative established in 2004 with headquarters in Colombia (Medellin).

ARM's mission is to set standards for responsible Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM) 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 miners, theirs families and communities.
Moreover, ARM has developed the Fairmined standard for gold and associated precious metals and owns the Fairmined Certification Mark, a registered trademark which shows that a product has met with our standard. The Fairmined standard enables producers to deliver fair metals and minerals through economically just supply chains to the markets.
ARM has supported around 100 mining organizations, which represents 15,000 people including miners, their families and communities, both directly and indirectly.
ARM has acquired experience in 12 countries, in particular in Latin America and Africa through cooperation projects and consultancies funded by a large range of public and private donors such as the Inter-American Development Bank, USDOL, USDOS, the UK Department for International Development as well as private foundations, etc.
We are constantly looking for new opportunities.
