Benjamin “Ben” Liu works as the International Copper Association’s (ICA) director of the Material Stewardship (MS), Public Affairs (PA) and Industry Engagement (IE) Teams in Asia. In this role, he integrates these three functions, supporting the development of scientific research with the MS team and leveraging this information for advocacy work with PA. Through IE, he gathers feedback and supports the needs of the ICA members and the wider Chinese copper industry, which then informs the work of both MS and PA.
By leading and coordinating these three efforts in Asia, Ben has successfully built a cohesive operation, uniting and streamlining the work of ICA in Asia to proactively respond to emerging challenges in the region. With a Master’s degree in Management and Marketing from Jinan University, Ben has enjoyed applying his expertise to developing a sustainability platform for the Chinese copper industry. A lifelong learner, he is currently pursuing an Executive Master of Public Affairs from Syracuse University and enjoys reading and playing basketball outside of the office.
