FLSmidth has joined the Copper Mark as a Partner to support the industry's efforts to promote responsible production practices while contributing towards to the United Nations SDGs (Sustainability Goals).

"As a member of the copper supply chain, we acknowledge our role in supporting responsible production. We encourage the mission and vision of the Copper Mark organisation and we are committed to expressing preference for copper producers assured by its framework."


Under FLSmidth terms, suppliers providing copper may be requested to participate in specific initiatives that support our responsible sourcing policy and efforts. FLSmidth will actively encourage suppliers to consider participating in the Copper Mark Assurance Framework and we look forward to engaging further in the pursuit of the responsible sourcing of materials.
