CODELCO Flagship Mine Achieved Copper Mark Sustainability Certification

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): Chilean state-owned copper mining giant, Codelco, obtained the Copper Mark sustainability certification for its flagship El Teniente mine- the underground copper mine located in the Chilean Andes.

During the previous year, the company had announced its intention to seek the prestigious sustainability certification for all of its operations by the end of 2023. Also, it had stated that the El Teniente mine in the commune of Machalí in Cachapoal Province would be the first to participate in the initiative.

In a statement released yesterday, Andre Sougarret, Codelco’s executive president noted that the credentials obtained by El Teniente today confirms that the company is very much on the right track. It will be much clearer when all of its operation centers complete the certification process and obtain the globally recognized accreditation.

Incorporated in 2019, the Copper Mark is a voluntary global program that aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In order to attain the prestigious sustainability certification, a site must pass through rigorous assessment of more than 32 sustainability criteria.

The rising pressure from international clients coupled with more stringent local regulations have been forcing Codelco to accelerate its journey to green transition.
