About CERA

The CERA Standard will ensure environmental, social and economic sustainability of all raw materials through the value chain.

Certificate for a better future

Sustainable development and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as introduced by the United Nations in 2016 are strategic topics recognized by the signatory countries as well as their respective legislators and industries.

Due to the often massive influences of mining on the environment and society, the mining industry has a crucial role to play in achieving the SDGs. Furthermore, increasing demand for raw materials of the industry pose significant challenges for the provision of sustainable supply chains.

In order to support the achievement of the SDGs, the CERA certification system was introduced for the provision and identification of sustainable raw material supply chains. It aims to provide means for sustainable production practices as well as traceability of sustainably sourced materials.
