Sustainability and Environmental Protection at INAIA

Invest with a clear conscience

In a world where unethical business practices are commonplace in many industries, you might be wondering: How can I ensure that my investments do not promote exploitation and environmental pollution? This is especially important in the realm of precious metals.

Gold from Responsible Sources

At INAIA, we have the solution. We are proud to offer you a gold savings plan that is not only financially attractive but also ethically responsible and sustainable.

„Green Gold“ instead of Conflict Gold

Conventional gold mining often occurs under environmentally damaging, hazardous, and inhumane conditions. Forced and child labor are prevalent in the gold industry. In some regions, the trade in gold contributes to the financing of armed conflicts – gold from these places is therefore referred to as "conflict gold" or "blood gold."

At INAIA, we are aware of these challenges and are committed to offering our customers only gold from sustainable and ethical sources. We source our gold from Valcambi, a leading producer of "Green Gold" in Switzerland. Green Gold means that the gold must meet certain standards regarding sustainability and conflict-free sourcing.

Fair Gold: Guidelines for Responsible Gold

The gold we source from Valcambi adheres to the LBMA criteria of the "Responsible Gold Guidance" program, which aims to ensure that gold mining is conducted sustainably. LBMA stands for the London Bullion Market Association, an international association of companies operating in the precious metals market. Within their "Responsible Gold Guidance" and "Good Delivery" certification, the following standards are established:

  • Companies should avoid human rights abuses in gold mining and trading.
    Prohibition of forced labor and child labor.
  • Companies should ensure adequate working conditions, such as payment and workplace safety.
  • Gold mining companies should reduce environmental impact, for example, by implementing measures to protect water bodies.
  • The gold from companies should be traceable along the supply chain.
  • Gold trading should not support conflict parties, such as in civil wars, or sponsor terrorist organizations.

Valcambi is also certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council, another organization striving to enforce more sustainable standards for gold.

In addition, for special products like our "Responsible Gold Bond," we have two additional environmental certificates from ÖGUT (Austrian Society for Environment and Technology) and imug (Rating Agency), which go beyond LBMA requirements.

Financial Success and Positive Impact

But what does that mean for you as an investor? It means that you can invest in gold knowing that your money will not be used to support harmful practices. Instead, you are supporting a company that advocates for better working conditions, more sustainable environmental practices, and ethical business practices.

In the Islamic tradition, the idea of sustainability is deeply rooted. Islam teaches us that we are stewards of the Earth and should preserve it for future generations. At INAIA, we believe it is possible to be both financially successful and have a positive impact on the world.
