    Goals / Remit

    Based in Brussels, the International Copper Association Europe (ICA Europe) is the leading advocate for the copper industry in Europe. With 32 members globally, ICA represents more than half of the world’s copper production and most of the EU’s production. As ICA’s European branch, the organisation represents companies that mine, smelt and recycle copper for use across the economy, in the electricity system, buildings, transport and industry. Through a team of policy, industry and scientific experts, ICA Europe promotes copper as an essential material for achieving the EU’s ambition of a resilient, climate-neutral Europe and seeks to ensure that EU policies enable the sustainable production of copper to serve Europe’s future needs. ICA Europe also serves as the secretariat of the REACH Copper Consortium, which provides a coordinated answer to EU requirements on chemical registration, evaluation and authorisation.
