From transport and energy storage to smartphones, the revision of the EU’s Battery Regulation has the potential to reduce the environmental impact and downside risks of our increasingly electrified and digital economy.

For this reason, together with Deutsche Umwelthilfe, ECOS, Transport & Environment and 42 other NGOs, we are calling on EU governments and institutions to implement a number of specific policy measures that would make durable, repairable and low carbon batteries the norm.
