Sustainable development


Sustainable development, the basis of all our projects

Sustainable development is a guiding principle for how we do things. Our every action and project is intended and designed to contribute to our community’s economic, environmental, and social well-being, in addition to safeguarding the health and safety of our employees and fellow citizens.

Our practices are regulated, both legally and environmentally, which drives us to introduce innovative projects that conform to the applicable laws, regulations, and standards. Like Glencore, Horne Smelter is committed to the highest standards in the areas of health, safety, environment, and community. As part of our commitment, we help publish an annual report on sustainable development performance.

Whatever form copper takes, its life cycle of copper can be indefinite, and we’re proud to extend that continuity thanks to our developmentally sustainable process.
