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 premium global provider of equipment, technology and knowledge to the mining industry, FLSmidth plays a key role in enabling and supporting best practices in the responsible production of copper. FLSmidth actively supports improvements in environmental, social and governance outcomes in all aspects of the copper value chain.

By joining the Copper Mark, we can further advance our MissionZero ambition, which is to support, enable and work with our mining customers so they can move towards zero energy, zero water waste and zero emissions by 2030," commented Thomas Schulz, Group CEO, FLSmidth.

"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.
