Policies & Issues: Environment

Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries, welcomes the opportunity to comment on creating sustainability and affordable requirements for batteries in the context of a New Regulatory Framework for Batteries, as enshrined in the European Green Deal and the New Circular Economy Action Plan.

Orgalim supports the European Commission’s efforts in laying down sustainability requirements for rechargeable batteries, leading to a competitive, innovative and greener battery ecosystem. The European technology industries remain firmly committed to measures of this kind that increase energy efficiency, cut GHG emissions and boost circularity of raw materials. Better performing high capacity rechargeable batteries would enable industrial leadership in clean and low emission mobility and energy storage, while helping Europe to achieve its ambition in driving the ongoing circular and climate-neutral transition.
