All Life Cycle Assessments can be improved by discovery of the copper in your chain and precisely where it comes from. We are making copper traceable as part of our IDASOLE R&D initiative
"Twelve Steps to Clean Copper™". We are driving a new Certified Deep Ecology standard at Copper Mines on behalf of the collective supply chain.
Sign our Petition>> Copper extraction, production & refinery mega-waste streams (e.g. mine tailings), GHGs, and health hazards to workers and communities can be dramatically improved by redefining the problem based on needfinding and new technologies for the upstream to adopt. INNOVATION at the upstream, defined by and for downstream sustainability goals, has been, and is still
currently overlooked. We are starting a new dialogue among Sustainable Brands and C-level and Board level miners, as well as CSR experts whose own lives will change by virtue of visiting mining towns. Highest impact win-win solutions for Mining Extractives' Community Social & Responsibility issues begins by immersion at the mines. Few of us realize the enormous amount of human and diesel energy that goes into the forging of the copper that so enhances our daily lives -- and has so for 8,000 years. We would not have digits to transmit, without first mastering the mechanisms of copper. We are focused on the copper in the global supply chain as a way and means to empower all SUS BRANDS, upstream to downstream, to be rewarded with 1st ever bookable Firm Owned Ecosystem Services™ (FOES) Assets. Also, wherever there is copper, we find The Elephant in The Supply Chain, i.e. Fossil Fuels. If we collaboratively identify the copper, we can move the Elephant aside with Solar & Hydrogen to attain Deep Ecology Rewards for all (but the Elephant).
Inside a dedicated R&D group, IDASOLE, we match identification of emissions and waste streams at copper mines with out-of-the-box Deep Ecology engineered projects and programs guaranteed to deliver bookable Ecosystem Services, by design, for firms, upstream to downstream and for regions worldwide. Downstream companies, customers and consumers are now able to directly participate in a mandate designed to overcome too often unacknowledged, under reported sources of pollution and hazards to workers, communities, and entire regions' ecological survivability. We advocate technology and innovation as the only way to bring about environmental justice, and economic parity in mining. Our projects are engineered for win-win-win: (1) downstream mining companies to upstream brands and distributors can treat Ecosystem
Services as assets within corporate portfolios at values representable within international accounting standards. They will be able to assert a valuation of Ecosystem Services (a form of Natural Capital) for Board room decisions in keeping with tradition financial decision making, (2) downstream companies can choose to pass forward Firm Owned Ecosystem Services™ (FOES™) as a currency Forex Hedge. FOES™ are assets, not Carbon Allowances (permits to continue polluting) or Offsets.And thirdly (3) we have created an App for driving Clean Copper into your products, your home, our supply chain! Yep. You, anyone, will be able to download our game FOX EARTH - Find the Copper In Your Chain (Alpha release Sep 2016 ). You will be able to earn Clean Copper™ Cracker rewards that flow into your Clean Copper™ Savings Account.
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.

The Buckminster Fuller Dymaxion Map is the ZNE·3 mark certifying CLEAN COPPER™ from its point of extraction and production to downstream products such as your laptop. Soon you can look for it on the packaging of the products you buy indicating CLEANCOPPER™ Rewards inside and applicable via apps.
