With a strong focus within the European Union on moving towards a low-carbon future, buildings are a key area where improvements can and should be made. Find out how copper could play a role in creating greener, smarter and healthier buildings.
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.
A low-carbon future relies on raw materials, including metals. There can be no wind or solar energy, nor electric vehicles, without copper, aluminium or steel, to name but a few.
The European Copper Institute and the Buildings Performance Institute Europe invite you to a conference on smart buildings, which will explore the policy aspects of integrating the concept into EU legislation, and also real-world examples.
Dr Katia Lacasse of the European Copper Institute has defined five points concerning copper, carbon pricing and future competitiveness in the European Union ahead of tomorrow’s Eurometaux-led meeting that asks: how can we really enable Europe’s low-carbon transition?
ECI contributed data and expertise to a recently-launched website providing scientific information about the behaviour of metals in the environment, targeting users of all backgrounds and levels of experience.
A special exhibition at Italy’s South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology—running until 14 January 2018—explores humanity’s relationship with its oldest metal: copper.
ECI will join the European metals industry on 19 October in Brussels to discuss the challenges and opportunities of enabling Europe’s low-carbon transition.
The European Copper Institute is among 13 companies and industry associations from across Europe that have joined forces to identify key asks for the upcoming Low Emission Mobility Package.
Tomorrow, ECI’s Katia Lacasse will chair a Eurometaux event addressing the implementation of conclusions drawn from a recently-published policy report: Best Available Techniques (BAT) Reference Document for the Non-Ferrous Metals Industries.
