The Copper Mark is an assurance framework set up to promote the responsible production of copper.
We work with companies and organisations throughout the copper industry to enable them to better understand and meet the increasing demands for independently verified responsible production practices, and to contribute positively to sustainable development.

The Copper Mark Chain of Custody Standard is live! The Standard sets the rules for a system of control and transparency for copper-containing products that move through a supply chain to support product-level claims related to “Copper Mark copper.” The Copper Mark is working with interested actors along the supply chain to implement a pilot over the next few months.
