Zinc as enabler Copper in power Cobalt in medicine Aluminium in orbit Copper in mobility Zinc in space Nickel in construction Cobalt in batteries

It’s thanks to cobalt that you can charge your camera, phone and laptop again and again. A tiny amount of this amazing metal regulates the temperature and ensures the longevity of the batteries at the heart of these devices. And it’s due to these qualities that cobalt has taken centre stage in the electric mobility revolution and the integration of renewable energy sources into the power grid. 

Cobalt is integral to creating a more sustainable world. But so too is the way we source it. At Glencore, we’re committed to doing this responsibly.
