Ryan Taylor

Ryan Taylor is founder of Consensas: a trading company for the new economy. Consensas enabled the first legal exports of ASM (artisanal small-scale mine) gold from the Democratic Republic of Congo in partnership with Impact's Just Gold project, combining development, human rights, and technology into a unique solution to responsible sourcing from conflict-affected and high-risk areas. Taylor, after an early career at Hewlett Packard, became a graduate goldsmith studying under numerous international designers, goldsmiths, and artists. He co-founded Fair Trade Jewellery Co. in 2006 where he focused his passion for flourishing supply chains by collaborating on industry standards and building mine-to-market responsible supply chains in the jewelry and minerals sector.
