Carrollton, Georgia-based Southwire Company, LLC has partnered with the Copper Mark, a sustainability initiative and designation for businesses in the copper value chain.

The Copper Mark is an assurance framework that “promotes the responsible production of copper,” Southwire said.

The designation is intended to show the copper industry’s contribution to sustainable development and provides a “comprehensive social and environmental assurance program for copper production.”

Copper Mark designees are expected to adhere to internationally recognized responsible operating practices.

“At Southwire, we engage in sustainability at local, state, national and global levels,” said Burt Fealing, executive vice president of general counsel and chief sustainability officer. “As we continue to build relationships with other sustainability leaders, we are pleased to work with the Copper Mark to improve environmental, social and governance outcomes in all facets of the copper supply chain. We look forward to making great strides in these areas as a partner of the Copper Mark.”
