Sustainability & Stewardship

The lead battery industry, with its established circular infrastructure, is a model for other battery chemistries — and industries — in how to responsibly source, use, reuse and manage materials. The industry seeks to play an active role in contributing to a cleaner, greener future and supporting their communities and beyond.

The lead acid battery ... is legendary. We can recycle 95+ percent of [these] batteries all across the world. It's a very safe chemistry, ... [and] we understand how to use it very, very well.
