ICA Members Use Innovation to Drive Progress Toward the UN SDGs
Due to its applications in electrification and clean energy, copper is essential for the transition to a low-carbon economy, but copper must be produced responsibly to truly enable a sustainable future. ICA and its members are committed to advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and responsible production practices are a crucial first step for the industry in meeting these objectives.
