Capstone Copper Corp. has committed to the Copper Mark at its Mantos Blancos and Mantoverde operations in Chile. The Copper Mark is an assurance framework to promote responsible production practices and demonstrate the industry’s commitment to the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals. Within one year, Mantos Blancos and Mantoverde will be assessed and independently verified against the Copper Mark’s 32 responsible production criteria, including environmental management, greenhouse gas emissions, human rights, community health, safety and development, and governance.
“I am proud to share that our Mantos Blancos and Mantoverde operations have joined the Copper Mark framework, reaffirming our commitment to continually pursue best practices based on international standards for responsible mining,” Capstone CEO John MacKenzie said. “Copper is essential to a low-carbon future, and so it is incumbent upon us to ensure that we supply this critical natural resource in as sustainable manner as possible.”
