Newmont joins International Copper Association

The International Copper Association (ICA) has added its newest member, global miner Newmont Corporation, following an election to membership.

The ICA board of representatives initially appointed the company as an addition to its ranks in December 2023.

“We look forward to engaging with the ICA on their efforts to support safe and sustainable production of copper as an essential metal in a way that protects the environment, engages local stakeholders and safeguards the health and well-being of our employees,” Newmont Executive Vice President and CDO Peter Toth said.

“We are committed to positively contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and look forward to bringing our values of safety, integrity, sustainability, inclusion and responsibility to our partnership with ICA and our growing copper operations.”

ICA President Juan Ignacio Díaz added: “We are very happy to welcome Newmont to ICA at this important juncture for global sustainable development. The copper industry plays a critical role in circular and energy-efficient solutions for electrification, renewable energy and green infrastructure. Newmont’s values and commitment to the environment make them a strong representative of the copper mining industry.”

U.S.-based Newmont is the world’s leading gold company and a producer of copper, zinc, lead and silver. The company’s world-class portfolio of assets, prospects and talent is anchored in favorable mining jurisdictions in Africa, Australia, Latin America and Caribbean, North America, and Papua New Guinea.
