The International Copper Association’s advocacy strategy is based on sound science and data in the fields of health, environment and sustainable development. ICA’s public affairs activities ensure the copper industry maintains its license to operate and fair market access for its products through proactive advocacy toward government and regulators.
ICA’s ability to build relationships and trust is important for ensuring the positive impact of the copper industry. Society’s ability to trust the copper industry is rooted in our reputation, our legacy and current behavior, and how we fulfill our promises and commitments.
Our members value strategic partnerships and cooperation in areas such as economic development, sustainable energy, public health, technological innovation, human health and the environment. To support them, ICA works closely with think tanks, universities and other thought leaders because we believe our sustainable development initiatives and industry advocacy efforts are stronger through collaboration.
Together with its members, ICA continues to invest in a fruitful conversation with policymakers and authorities to ensure fair and sound legislation and regulation.
