At its highest level, sustainable development is at the core of the work of the International Copper Association (ICA). Our mission is to bring together the global copper industry to develop and defend markets for copper and to make a positive contribution to society’s sustainable-development goals. ICA leads the world’s copper industry on the issues critical to securing copper’s future growth. ICA’s status as a not-for-profit trade association provides its members with a credible, independent advocate to address challenges faced by the collective industry.
From clean energy to sustainable communities to climate change, the copper industry's work advances all 17 of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a sign of the industry's commitment to meeting the SDGs, ICA and its members have developed the Copper Mark, the first and only comprehensive social and environmental assurance program for copper production. Copper producers participating in the Copper Mark are committed to adhering to internationally recognized responsible operating practices.
