Description of the business model and presentation of the Group structure
We are continuing to develop our business model consistently in alignment with the new company Vision. Today, Aurubis’ main focus is on the production and processing of copper. Aurubis primarily processes copper concentrates that are mined from ores and sourced on the global market. The company purchases the necessary raw materials, as it doesn’t have its own mines or stakes in mines. The processing of secondary raw materials plays an important role as well. Moreover, Aurubis is currently expanding its business model beyond copper and increasingly implementing a multimetal approach. This means that, in addition to copper, other metals will be extracted from systematically purchased raw materials and intermediate products and then processed into marketable products with added value.
