Green Copper

Accelerating a Green Innovation With Renewable Energy and Green Copper Ecosystems.

Copper helps to reduce harmful carbon emissions. It is an essential material in building the energy systems of the future. It plays an important role in renewable energy systems, such as solar, wind, tidal, hydro, biomass and geothermal.

Copper and the Environment

Copper is a naturally occurring element present in the earth’s crust, oceans, lakes and rivers, from minute trace element levels through to rich mine deposits. Copper is the most highly rated thermal and electrical conductor among the metals used in infrastructure and product design. Power systems utilizing copper generate, transmit and use energy with higher efficiency, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions and optimizing lifecycle costs.

The Copper Industry Must be a Responsible Environmental Factor

Copper has several clear benefits for the environment. However, we are also mindful of the potential negative environmental impacts of its activities and strive to protect the environment through reducing emissions and overall environmental impact of our activities. We also gather data to evaluate, substantiate and mitigate potential concerns.
As an example, we have undertaken a voluntary comprehensive risk assessment, covering the production, use and end-of-life aspects of the copper metal value chain. It shows the existing legislative framework that generally safeguards our environment, the health of industry workers and the general public.

Did you know that the average percentage of copper in the earth’s crust is 0.005%?
