Copper produced by Montanwerke Brixlegg AG through upcycling is made using 100% recycled materials and with significantly less CO2 compared with primary copper works. Thanks to our copper production recycling process, our company is already making a huge contribution to climate protection and to European and national climate targets.
Through our work with selected energy suppliers and the resulting purchase of more environmentally friendly and sustainable energy, we also remain mindful of our indirect impact on the climate and we optimise this. In addition, we keep our CO2 footprint as low as possible when transporting our products, which we accomplish by moving transport from road to rail and the operational connection track.
Demand for environmentally friendly products and their product carbon footprint is constantly increasing and by applying international environmental accounting standards, we are able to guarantee the transparent communication of our products’ environmental footprint.
Our environmental accounting in accordance with ISO 14040/14044 results in a verified product carbon footprint pursuant to ISO 14067 of 0.739 tons of CO2 per ton of copper cathode produced (scope 1 + 2 + 3). This means that we produce the copper with the lowest CO2 footprint in the industry.
