NSCAD signs Fairmined agreement to use responsibly sourced silver and gold

NSCAD University has been granted an institutional license from Fairmined, an assurance initiative by the Alliance for Responsible Mining that certifies gold and silver as materials of responsible origin. With this license, NSCAD U’s Jewelry department will provide students with access to ethically sourced materials and training on Fairmined-approved guidelines. The gold and silver versions of NSCAD U’s 2024 Alumni Rings will also be made with Fairmined certified metals and produced by a jeweller who was an early adopter of Fairmined materials. The university says that the arrangement is the first deal of its kind.
