AMMAN Announces Its Commitment to The Copper Mark for Responsible Copper Production
JAKARTA, 26 September 2023 - PT Amman Mineral Nusa Tenggara (AMMAN) signed a Letter of Commitment (LoC) with The Copper Mark, the first and only assurance framework for copper, created to demonstrate responsible production practices and the industry’s contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs.

AMMAN’s President Director, Rachmat Makkasau, stated that the association with The Copper Mark describes the company’s commitment to implementing good mining practices in every aspect of its operations. “As one of Indonesia’s largest copper producers, AMMAN’s vision is to create a legacy of best in everything we do. Our legacy is not only for the company, but also for surrounding communities and environment. This vision is our motivation to sign the LoC with The Copper Mark,” stated Rachmat.

To receive The Copper Mark participating copper producer sites, including AMMAN’s, are assessed against 32 responsible production criteria. The criteria are defined by the Risk Readiness Assessment created and owned by the Responsible Minerals Initiative. The Risk Readiness Assessment covers the core expectations for responsible production across all major environmental, social and governance issue areas. Once the participating site can demonstrate, through an independent third-party assessment, that they fully or partially meet all 32 criteria, the Copper Mark is awarded. For any areas that are partially met, the site must implement an improvement plan within 12 months of the assessment.

Founded and developed by the International Copper Association, since December 2019, The Copper Mark has been incorporated as an independent and multi-stakeholder organization. The organization is governed by its Board of Directors and Multi-stakeholder Advisory Council including civil society and human rights experts.
