ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system, whilst OHSAS 18001 is a British Standard issued in recognition of occupational health and safety management systems.

PAMP is very active in the development and the implementation of responsible supply chain of precious metals practices through the industry, such as the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals, the LBMA Responsible Gold Guidance and the Swiss Better Gold Association.

PAMP is furthermore a certified member of the Responsible Jewellery Council (RJC), members of which have to comply with stringent ethical, social and environmental standards. PAMP is also one of the first refiners to have passed the LBMA's Responsible Gold Guidance Audit.

The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
