The International Copper Association (ICA) is the leading advocate for the copper industry. We are a nonprofit organization bringing together the copper industry and its partners to make a positive contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and support markets for copper.

The Copper Alliance® represents an international network of copper interests, led by ICA. ICA, along with our Copper Alliance® partners, connects the upstream (mining and smelting/refining) and downstream (fabricating) parts of the copper value chain. We provide a common platform for the copper industry to advocate for our shared interests with policy makers, regulators and other key stakeholders (e.g., the United Nations, NGOs, etc.).

ICA has six key programmes, among which the Clean Energy Transition programme, which deals with energy and material efficient electrical equipment, such as motors and transformers. Other areas of activity in this programme include renewable energy, transmission and distribution of power and electric mobility.
