The members of the International Copper Association continue to make a positive impact on sustainable-development challenges worldwide. Sustainability is at the core of ICA’s mission, and 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—from climate change and public health to electric vehicles—rely on copper and its unique properties.
Copper connects broadly and critically with the global sustainable development agenda.
