2015 ECI Funding
ECI, plus its network of national Copper Alliance partners, operated with a 2015 budget of €10 million ($13 million) to develop and carry out promotional and regulatory affairs activities.
While the International Copper Association, representing the world’s leading mining companies, independent smelter/refiners (metal producers) and semi-fabricated product manufacturers, provided 80% of this budget, European member staff devoted
significant time and contributed much-needed value chain intelligence into program design, regulatory issue management and national authority advocacy.
Over 100 partners, including the United Nations, national energy agencies, academic institutions, consultancies and industrial companies, continue to provide strong support for ECI’s Leonardo ENERGY program, which promotes broadly the sustainable generation, distribution and use of electrical energy.
