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.

For three years, the European Copper Institute has worked with seven partners in the IndustRE consortium to develop solutions for the effective decarbonisation of industry. Rooted in the concept of redesigning industrial processes to use higher shares of renewable electricity, a tool set has now been developed for companies to use as part of their decarbonisation strategy.

Our member companies are at the forefront of implementing low-carbon energy solutions. One in particular, Codelco, tells a compelling story about transforming existing business operations based on fossil fuels into greener solutions fit for a cleaner future.
