Who We Are

  • Founded in 1996
  • Headquartered in Brussels with colleagues across Europe
  • The voice of Europe’s copper industry

The European Copper Institute (ECI) contributes to growing Europe’s copper market by building a positive, sustainable future for the industry through promotion and defence of copper use. We engage both on the regulatory level and via market support programmes, working in close cooperation with our members, who represent the complete copper value chain, from copper miners, smelters and recyclers to fabricators.

ECI is also part of the Copper Alliance, which brings together the global copper industry to develop and defend markets for copper, and make a positive contribution to society’s sustainable development goals.
