Glencore joins World Economic Forum’s Global Battery Alliance
6 March 2020
The GBA and its members aim to help establish, and collaborate on, a sustainable global battery value chain by 2030.
The GBA’s mission aligns with Glencore’s overall objective to responsibly source the commodities that advance everyday life.
As a responsible producer and marketer of commodities essential to the energy and mobility transition - such as cobalt, nickel and copper - we intend to play an active role in the alliance, and to join forces with many of our business partners to help establish and promote a circular and responsible battery value chain.
Being part of the GBA will further enable us to fulfil our commitment to the transition to a low-carbon economy.
We look forward to being part of this important global initiative and will publish details on specific initiatives and actions and in due course.
