Accelerating the use of Sustainable Batteries in Transport

post-image

The World Economic Forum estimates the world needs a 35% increase in the production of batteries by 2030 to meet the 2°C goal of the Paris Agreement. 

Attracting this level of investment is challenging enough, but consider also the additional problems of ethical mineral sourcing, the re-use and recycling of batteries, as well as the inevitable final life treatment of residual waste.

The Global Battery Alliance takes a holistic view of the value chain & seeks to influence Government's, businesses & NGO's to support 10 actions to deliver a more sustainable value-chain for the electrification of transport.
