The copper Elcowire will use has been produced with CO2 emissions that are less than half of the global average (4.1 kg CO2/kg copper) quoted by the International Copper Association, said the company.
Boliden has achieved the emissions goal through the electrification of various stages in the mining process, including a more efficient ore concentration process and the use of green energy.
"Elcowire wants to set an example for the mining and metals industry to produce minerals with a low impact on nature and the climate,"said Elcowire.
"The way we work together to strive for new solutions is placing us on a path to contribute to the long-term improvement of our world. Low-carbon Copper is an excellent example of that," says Paul Gustavsson, chief executive of Elcowire.
