Stuller Now Supplying Responsibly Mined Platinum Grain
It is making the grain available to customers via a partnership with Anglo American.
“We are committed to providing the U.S. jewelry industry with unparalleled access to platinum, as well as focusing on supporting a more socially and environmentally conscious future,” Stuller Chief Operating Officer Belit Myers said.
Stuller said the platinum it gets from Anglo American will be sourced in compliance with the London Platinum and Palladium Market’s (LPPM) Responsible Platinum/Palladium Guidance.
The LPPM introduced its Responsible Sourcing Programme in January 2019.
It is mandatory for every member of its Good Delivery and Sponge Accreditation Lists to submit an annual report of the steps it takes to comply with the guidance.
The guidance outlines the due diligence practices each mining company or refiner must implement within their operations to combat systematic or widespread abuses of human rights, avoid contributing to conflict, comply with anti-money laundering, and combat the financing of terrorists.
“As a leading producer of platinum, we are dedicated to supporting the accessibility of our metal in the U.S. jewelry market,” said Benny Oeyen, Anglo American’s executive head of market development for platinum group metals.
“Our ambition is to be a sustainability leader in the mining industry and a pioneer in the provision of responsibly mined platinum to the U.S. jewelry industry.”
The platinum grain from Anglo American is now available on the Stuller website.
