RJC Media Release

Sustainability: A 2021 Perspective Rebuilding Trust in the Decade of Action

The past year has been a year of reckoning, reflection and reassessing how we relate to one another and to the planet. There is a lot that has been said about the changes this unprecedented year has brought and also about the next normal that seems to be on the not-so-distant horizon. Among all of this, I am convinced of the centrality of a value that has taken on enormous significance and holds true in more ways than we had probably imagined before the pandemic began – interconnectedness. This is why I feel our industry will do well, we are a global family of businesses who have always been interdependent in bringing products to the consumer that are pure emotion and trust. Of the many lessons that have emerged from this turbulent year, one rang true across the globe – we are all in this together.

Emergency action needed for vulnerable artisanal and small-scale mining communities and supply chains

As the corona virus sweeps the globe, affecting the health and lives of millions, the pandemic is wreaking further economic havoc on the lives of artisanal, small scale miners and their communities. Around 83 per cent of the world’s mining workforce relies on these mines for their livelihood. That comes to roughly 40.5 million people. These people were vulnerable before the corona pandemic and even more so now.

We – the undersigned global civil society organizations and community-based associations – are calling for immediate and concerted action from governments, financing institutions, international organizations, private sector actors and others to support artisanal mining communities and to shore up their resilience in this time of corona virus crisis.

Testimonials

What people say about us

I joined the RJC in 2006 to ensure that small businesses were not left behind. I actually found the process way more useful than I ever imagined and it helped me and my business to ‘grow up’. It showed me some things I really needed like procedures and safety guidelines. My little team all worked together to get through it, which helped to empower them too. The RJC team were always there to advise and support along the way.
