A story of sustainability
MetCon is committed to demonstrating social, economic and environmental value, in a world that deserves our efforts.
As MetCon, we have the incredible opportunity of co-creating the environment in which we work and live.
The ways that we source, refine and produce precious metals tell a story. How we treat our people, our customers and our communities builds on that story. We view sustainability as a journey; a daily intention to make better choices , for our people, products and planet.
The Evolution of African Wealth
Our vision weaves economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection into our company’s DNA. We strive to beneficiate responsibly sourced precious metals into products and service offerings that celebrate our cultures, protect our natural landscape and allow us all to share in the wealth of our land. It is not a minor mission, but no valuable mission is.Learn more
By adopting sustainable and restorative practices, we may solve the needs of the present without compromising those of the future.
We are a proud member of the London-based Responsible Jewellery Council. We hold dual certification in the form of Chain of Custody and Code of Practice.
The RJC Code of Practices is the only independently verified sustainability standard for the global jewellery and watch industry, covering the entire supply chain from mine to retail. The Code of Practices 2019 is aligned with the OECD Due Diligence Guidance and the UN Guiding Principles of Business and Human Rights. RJC Certified Member status demonstrates commitment to good business, and to creating a responsible worldwide supply chain that promotes trust and transparency in our industry.View our certifications visit rjc
We source our precious metals with consideration and care, from trusted suppliers who adhere to strict chain of custody protocol.
We only accept a new source following a comprehensive due diligence process, outlined in the internationally determined RJC best practice.
We never compromise our standards, as responsible practices are the best defence against human rights violations, environmental degradation
and reduced economic opportunities for communities along our supply chain.
Supported by our partners, Anglo American Platinum, we are one of the few refiners in the world to produce a Platinum Provenance certificate, accredited and approved by the RJC.
We are also an accredited member of the Responsible Minerals Initiative, a critical and respected resource for the responsible sourcing of minerals.
