CREATING A SUSTAINABLE, RESPONSIBLE FUTURE
We’re forever seeking the better solution for our customers, for the planet we all share, and for the people who use our vehicle energy storage products every day.
ENSURING SUSTAINABILITY ON MANY LEVELS
In this video, Chief Sustainability Officer Adam Muellerweiss details the many steps we’re taking to ensure a sustainable world—including creating and maintaining one of the world's largest circular economies to recycle vehicle batteries, and working to extend these principles to other battery technologies.
OUR GOAL IS PROGRESS FOR PEOPLE, BUSINESS, AND OUR PLANET.
For more than 130 years, we’ve focused on developing battery technologies using less energy and resources, while meeting increasing consumer demands and the needs of our customers.
OLD BATTERIES RETURNED. NEW BATTERIES PRODUCED AND SOLD. AND THE CYCLE CONTINUES.
At Clarios, we've established one of the world's most successful examples of a circular economy. Our vision is a world where 100 percent of vehicle batteries are responsibly recycled and used to power the next generation of vehicles.
WE DON'T JUST HAVE the VISION,
WE HAVE THE BLUEPRINT.
Our blueprint is built on 130+ years of leadership across every stage of battery innovation, design, materials sourcing,
manufacturing, distribution, collection and recycling.
WE DELIVER VALUE FELT ACROSS SOCIETY
Today, our advanced battery technology has the ability to cover 95% of OEM vehicle platforms, supporting a 5%+ increase in fuel economy. We are committed to developing sustainable, research-powered energy storage solutions to meet the demands of our customers, communities, investors and employees.

SOLUTIONS TO INCREASE FUEL ECONOMY
WE HOLD OURSELVES TO THE HIGHEST OPERATIONAL STANDARDS—OUR OWN.
Together, we go further to actively prevent occupational injuries, protect the environment, conserve energy, water, and raw materials, use renewable energy, prevent pollution, and recycle and reuse battery components.
LOWER LEAD AIR EMISSIONS SINCE 1990
MORE BATTERY PRODUCTION IN THE SAME PLANTS
WE MAKE SMART, EFFICIENT USE OF RESOURCES.
Our closed-loop system encompasses battery design, manufacture, transport, recovery and recycling—making automotive batteries the most recycled consumer product in the world. We are actively collaborating with partners and policy makers to share our experience and accelerate global adoption of circular economy principles.
WE PUBLICLY REPORT OUR PERFORMANCE AND PROGRESS.
We are committed to setting the standard in Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S), Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Risk Management. We achieve this by exceeding requirements and letting our performance do the talking.
WE HELP CREATE GLOBAL STANDARDS FOR EQUAL PROTECTION.
By advocating for regulatory standards and industry best practices that provide equal protection for everyone on the planet, we serve as a resource for governments and trade organizations to understand and responsibly mitigate risks within the battery lifecycle.
