We reflect on this year’s Wire & Cable conference, considering contributions by ECI and our members, and key takeaways for the copper industry.
Global stakeholders gathered in Antwerp last week for the World Resources Forum. A joint European Copper Institute and International Copper Association session looked at Copper and the Circular Economy: Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions. From this deep-dive, we pulled out five key take-aways.
On 7 November, Eurometaux organised a workshop to discuss how to stimulate substitution in the metals sector from a circular economy perspective. The latter is key, since closing the loop through safe reuse or recycling will improve the performance of substances exponentially, significantly lowering the risk of a given material.
On 16 October, the Copper REACH Consortium joined 14 other consortia—representing around 300 substances, including most metals—to formalise our cooperation with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) on the Metals and Inorganics Sectorial Approach (MISA).
This week, Bernard Respaut, Chief Executive of the European Copper Institute, will address the European Mineral Resources Conference on the contribution copper makes to building a strong and sustainable Europe.
European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is an annual highlight for everyone working on sustainable energy policy issues, both in Brussels and across member states. This year’s theme is ‘Lead the Clean Energy Transition.’
The European Copper Institute’s 2017 Annual Report is now available to read, providing an overview of who we are and how we operate, and our main activities throughout 2017.
The European Copper Institute (ECI) is pleased to introduce the seventh edition of the biennial contest “Copper and the Home”, which will be centred on the theme of sustainability. Respecting the environment, recycling and avoiding the waste of natural resources are of great importance, and copper can enable concrete solutions for these needs.
The results of the 2017 European Copper in Architecture Awards 18 have been announced.
Today, ECI is pleased to launch the #AccelerateET social media initiative, aiming to intensify the energy transition conversation by highlighting the EU’s champions of decarbonisation.
