The Copper Mark, an assurance framework set up to promote the responsible production of copper and demonstrate the copper industry’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of green resource transition, has been joined in this commitment by Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation.
Schneider Electric is committed to sustainable and responsible material sourcing, and copper is a vital raw material in its supply chain. Schneider’s products and solutions help its customers be more sustainable, and the company is leading by example working to be more sustainable in its own operations.
With this addition, The Copper Mark has reached 19 industry partners. These diverse partnerships illustrate the variety of uses and applications of copper, with the metal forming a key part of many products and services people use every day.
Michèle Brülhart, Executive Director, The Copper Mark, said: “We are delighted to welcome Schneider Electric as our newest partner. This new partnership will help the Copper Mark to promote and raise awareness around responsible business practices within the digital sector, working with their leaders and suppliers to improve understanding around ESG standards more effectively.”
Daniel W. Bartel, Chief Procurement Officer, Global Supply Chain, Schneider Electric, said: “The Copper Mark and Schneider Electric share the same goal to accelerate responsible material sourcing for metals. In particular, Schneider Electric has committed to increase Green Materials in products to 50% by 2025. We look forward to engaging further with The Copper Mark to encourage our suppliers to participate in The Copper Mark Assurance Process and aim collectively at responsible copper production.”
