IEWC Partnership with The Copper Mark
IEWC advances a connected world and sustainable copper production
IEWC is a proud partner of The Copper Mark, a recognition of and commitment to responsible sourcing policy and strategy. The Copper Mark is an independent assurance framework that promotes responsible copper production and encourages contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It is the first and only framework developed specifically for the copper industry to demonstrate responsible production performance to customers, investors, final manufacturers, and other stakeholders.
Adopting The Copper Mark reinforces our commitment to procuring copper products that are sourced through responsible environmental and social production practices across our global operations. As a wire and cable solutions, IEWC relies on copper as a metal central to our purpose: Advancing a connected world. Whether it’s for wire and cable for original equipment manufacturers; custom assemblies and power cables that advance reliable telecommunications networks; or cables that expand infrastructure; we are dedicated to supporting this progress sustainably with responsibly produced copper.
To receive The Copper Mark, copper producers must be assessed independently against a comprehensive set of environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. The framework is focused on copper producers at the beginning of the supply chain, but also includes The Copper Mark Partners: distributors like IEWC, fabricators, and other related parties, with the goal of establishing a chain of custody for the entire copper supply chain. The Copper Mark was originally developed by the International Copper Association (ICA) with input from financial institutions, commodities exchanges, NGOs, OEMs, and copper fabricators. It is now an independent entity.
