Follow-up feasibility study on sustainable batteries under FWC ENER/C3/2015-619-Lot 1. Task 4 report: Sustainable sourcing
The aim of Task 4 is to identify and assess high risk raw materials used in batteries, by analysing their supply chains. Specifically risks to environment and people. The general aim of this study is to support developing of a new internal market Regulation for batteries, which means; to set the performance and sustainability criteria that batteries will have to comply to be placed on the EU market. This may eventually be combined with the revision of the battery directive. Task 4 investigates the possibility to set requirements related to the sustainable sourcing of some raw materials for the production of batteries.
