The "Better Gold Initiative"

Switzerland and Peru adopted agreements on climate change, public financial management and the Iniciativa Oro Responsable (Better Gold Initiative). The latter aims to improve the technical, social and ecological conditions of small mines and cooperatives. This is important because Switzerland imports half of Peruvian gold exports. President Leuthard welcomed Peru’s intention to join the ‘Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights’, supported by Switzerland, which serve as a framework for oil, gas and mining companies.
