European Commission: Research & Innovation for Sustainable Batteries

Sustainability in its three dimensions (economic, social, environmental) will be a hallmark of EU battery technologies at global scale. Research and innovation must be able to deliver concrete technical solutions across the whole value chain to ensure the transformation of the EU into a more sustainable and competitive economy by 2050. The new Commission proposal on sustainability requirements for batteries in the EU will modernise the EU legislative framework in order to fulfil three objectives: strengthen the competitiveness of the EU internal battery market, increase the resilience of the EU battery supply chain by closing the materials loop, reduce the environmental and social impact in all stages of batteries’ life cycle.
