Who are we?: Clean Copper Supply Chain Alliance,
pbc (Delaware public benefits corporation) exists to formalize and serve as a consensus of downstream and midstream supply chain actors wanting to achieve Clean Copper™ and its Deep Ecology standard for their supply chain and corporate sustainability efforts, but are hindered in doing so mining companies' definition of sustainability. We seek to raise the sustainability standard of the coppering mining cos such that a Fossil Fuel Free supply chain is possible within the decade.
How do we define Clean Copper™?:
When all industrial processes AT THE COPPER MINES are transitioned to adopt all solar & hydrogen technologies, only, for extraction, production and refining of elemental metals , then the Global Supply Chain will be able to operate without Fossil Fuels.
We focus only on copper. The rest will follow as a result.
Clean Copper™ presents a breakthrough methodology for a firm, including the mine cos., to literally book UN defined Ecosystem Services as a firm owned assets. Our doing so represents the first time that Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services will be able to be transformed to a valuation that Board Rooms can make business decisions around.
The Alliance exists to consult and innovate with its member companies and consumers, strategic plans around engineering innovations that serve up optimal Ecosystem Services to be booked by any given member client, namely mining, that will then drive a literal exchange of Ecosystem Services in order to spread the wealth throughout the membership's chains.
We hope to convince copper mining to embrace the fact that elemental mining can and should own the 21st century extractives industry if they were to simply embrace change and get on board Clean Copper™.
Why is this so? The Oil & Gas sector of extractives will never survive their now well advertised Stranded Asset conundrum, whereas Elemental Mining will, but only if they rise to the occasion to jump up, shoot out of the ground, and declare to the sustainable brands of the world that they will embrace Zero Emissions, Zero Waste standards alongside them. Given that copper is already 80% recycled, (1) if elemental copper mining does not clean up its own carbon footprint to a standard acceptable outside of their industry's definition, then they may well find the mid-stream scrap and recyclers curtail their profits and demand, and (2) copper's inherent ability to be recycled whereas oil and gas cannot be should be an obvious tip off that now is the time for copper mining to put pedal to the metal, align with the leading edge definition of sustainability at the downstream (such as what they can find a Sustainable Brands, Green Biz, and Ethical Corporation).
To date, metals mining struggles to fully comprehend the value going the extra mile to truly be the leading sustainabilty standard to the world. They regard sustainability as punitive, costly per time for permits, and for the Public Affairs department to sort out.
To date, Metals Mining companies, per a plethora of industry associations, rest on the "laurel" of their being an extractive industry and therefore they rely on definitions of sustainability provided them by their International Copper Association which advise there is really nothing mining cos can do about the disruption to the earth as it is inherent to the industry. Instead, they exist to promote the sale of more copper to all else that are striving to make the world a greener place to live --- all based on the incredible properties of copper itself.
We have adopted the FOX as the mascot and avatar for The Alliance. Did you ever see a Fox, well known to dig holes, build up unimaginable waste piles and dams of Earth that are then "permitted" by Mother Earth Management to allow their breakage causing untold toxic waste to then override rivers, streams, bays, and oceans not to mention fishstock, trees, villages, and human life --all to be destroyed without impunity.
FOX EARTH has geo-tech methods to be studied and adopted.
It is time the Elemental Mine Cos honor the example and hard earned progress that the downstream global supply chain has made over the last thirty years. For the Mine Cos to now embrace the same, will mark a line in the sand that hence forth begins a new era for Elemental Extractives and their relationship to the global economy as well as that of Oil & Gas Extractives. To the end of the later, copper and elemental mining will no longer be dependent upon Fossil Fuels. In other words, were copper mining to awaken to their 21st century true, they would seize the day, and race forward to be the 1st in Extractives to get it right: Zero Emissions, Zero Waste as driven by engineering guided by Deep Ecology principles and ideology.
What are we?:
A key technology that the Alliance offers up to its members is: a consultancy that will assist any and all to reassess its accounting and valuations based on Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services can be booked as "Firm Owned Ecosystem Services (FOES™).
One might ask: "FOES to whom?"
We answer: "FOES to Fossil Fuel."
To rally the global supply chain's participants of all march and creed, makes for a profound market motivation for the copper companies to want to adopt Clean Copper™ as their single minded goal for the future. Any copper company that does not want to perform for its downstream customers based on this cry for finally joining in the wave of Sustainable Brands that have tasked small armies inside their companies to find ways to become at one with Mother Earth,
them clean up their products will simplyfrom the point of extraction, and hence, alters the entire global supply chain's life cycle assessments and analyses.
Business Case: we are able to re-value both a copper mining cos' assets based on UN definitions of Natural Capital and Ecosystem Services such that we can assure bookable "Firmed Owned Ecosystem Services"™ to both the copper mining cos and the downstream supply chain vendors, suppliers, OEMs, customers and consumers
Competition: Our competition is: the widely advertise "solution" to Climate Change, i.e. The Carbon Tax and all of its derived Allowances, etc on many exchanges around the world, none of which are oh so successful with delivering on a commodity market driven price that entices the investor to want to embrace the predicated solution/fix for abating emission. One can easily argue that a Carbon Tax is a license to pollute whereas bookable Ecosystem Services is a true incentive for lasting change while also delivering on financial value for everybody in the global supply chain. When one couples bookable Ecosystem Service's methodology to Clean™ then a premium grade of copper is born that can compete with silver and gold for socially conscious investors.
is a recently formed Consumer-Industry Alliance for driving Zero Net Energy·Waste ·Emissions (ZNE·3) change inside the metals industry at the point of extraction, smelting and refining.
It has no affiliations with existing Copper Mining (or other metals) industry associations.
