Stakeholder engagement is a critical element in the governance, design, and implementation of the Copper Mark.
STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT IN THE DESIGN OF THE COPPER MARK
The Copper Mark was initially developed and funded by the International Copper Association (ICA).
THE COPPER MARK
In December 2019, The Copper Mark was incorporated as a separate entity from the ICA. Over the course of 2020, the Copper Mark established its own governance structure and started to formalize the engagement of stakeholders at all levels of the organization. The Copper Mark has defined clear milestones to achieve a balanced representation of stakeholder interests across all its activities and progress towards those objectives is regularly reviewed.
In May 2020, The Copper Mark launched the multi-stakeholder Advisory Council to advise the Board on the implementation of the Copper Mark’s vision and mission. Details on the Advisory Council’s composition, roles and responsibilities can be found here. The Advisory Council oversees the Copper Mark’s technical working groups.
THE FUTURE OF STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT
Stakeholders are always welcome to provide feedback on the Theory of Change, Monitoring and Evaluation System, Standards, the Assurance Process, and other policies and procedures. We invite stakeholders to engage through:
- Participation in the Advisory Council and appropriate technical working group
- Standard consultation workshops
- Public standard consultations
- Sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Submitting a grievance through the Grievance Mechanism
The Copper Mark regularly shares information on our programs, as well as specific opportunities for consultation through:
- The Copper Mark Newsflash
- The Copper Mark Website
- The Copper Mark social media channels
- One-on-one dialogues
