Working Paper Sustainability and Innovation S03/2016
This Working Paper presents a brief but comprehensive graphical overview of copper contained in international trade, from copper concentrates through to finished products. Extensive data checks and a simple consolidation method were performed before visualizing the data on world maps. While data were collected and anlyzed for the period 1992-2014, the year 2014 is used here to follow the global journey of copper from mine to final users.
