The selected companies are classified by Sprott as copper producers, developers or explorers with an intensity score of at least 25 per cent. Copper is needed for the transition to a less carbon-intensive economy and is therefore crucial for the energy transition from fossil fuels to cleaner energy sources and technologies.
Companies that violate the principles of the UN Global Compact or are involved in deals in weapons, oil and gas, oil sands, thermal coal and pesticides will be excluded.
