While precious metals are indispensable to many industries, various social issues have also arisen relating to mining, production, and distribution. Businesses that procure and supply precious metals must ensure they are not making these issues worse. The gold and silver produced by the Asahi Holdings Group are delivered in ways that are friendly to people, society, and the environment. We meet the responsible sourcing guidelines of the LBMA*1 and the strict standards for RJC certification. Going forward, we will continue to promote business activities and initiatives that consider ethical, social, and environmental concerns, while fulfilling our responsibilities by supplying precious metals.
