Sustainable development is an ongoing journey within the International Copper Association and our member companies. The copper industry is united in its efforts to develop and operate in a more sustainable manner.
Many of the global trends driving the sustainable-development agenda rely on copper and its unique properties, such as:
- Climate-change mitigation and adaptation
- Energy efficiency and energy security
- Water quality
- Renewable energy
- Energy access
- Public health
- And more
Copper connects broadly and critically with the global sustainable development agenda.
