The Copper Alliance® represents an international network of copper interests, led by ICA.
ICA is an international organization with staff and members from all over the world. We bring together our different cultures and wide-ranging expertise on markets, policies, public affairs, and science to make an impact on issues critical to copper and the copper industry. With our diverse backgrounds, we are committed to working together and with our members around a shared passion: building a modern, greener, sustainable society of the future with copper.
At ICA, we value Open and Constructive Communication and Collaboration, a Respectful Working Environment, and Equity and Inclusion.
OPEN AND CONSTRUCTIVE COMMUNICATION AND COLLABORATION
We practice open and constructive communication by challenging ideas—not people. We address issues and co-create across projects, involving each other from the start. We empower collaboration through open feedback and sharing information across regions and programs.
RESPECTFUL WORKING ENVIRONMENT
We enable a respectful working environment by acknowledging other cultures and regional specificities—treating each other with kindness. We remain accountable to each other and provide input and constructive feedback to the best of our ability. We consider other staff’s personal preferences, limitations, time and commitments.
EQUITY AND INCLUSION
We promote equity and inclusion by regarding each team member as an important stakeholder of the organization’s mission. We value interpersonal interaction and a diversity of opinions without silos, and we endeavor to create a space where all staff feel comfortable contributing their expertise and ideas to the organization’s work.
At ICA, we value Responsible and Credible Partnership, Transparent, Evidence-based Solutions, and Open Dialogue with Stakeholders.
RESPONSIBLE AND CREDIBLE PARTNERSHIP
We engage in responsible and credible partnership through consistent and reliable output. We take a long-term view of the future and are selective in our choice of partners to ensure reliability and integrity in our work. We consistently review and optimize our work and maintain our level of expertise through education, engagement and professional development.
TRANSPARENT, EVIDENCE-BASED SOLUTIONS
We develop transparent, science-based solutions by ensuring our claims are fact-based and the parameters of our work are honestly represented and defined. We are open about our information sources, and we deliver global knowledge and local expertise.
OPEN DIALOGUE WITH OUR STAKEHOLDERS
We ensure open dialogue with our stakeholders by convening members, the copper value chain and external stakeholders, such as regulators, policymakers and NGOs. We create a culture of two-way interaction with our stakeholders, empowering our members to engage with the copper value chain and beyond.
