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 welcomes two new participating sites: Hamburg and Lünen from Aurubis AG. This brings the total number of sites to 25, with 10 having received the Copper Mark. Read more including the letters of commitment and summary assessment reports here.
