Sustainable impact on the EU battery passport ecosystem
A comprehensive guideline on all aspects of a digital Battery Passport for securely sharing information along the battery value chain in accordance with the upcoming Battery Regulation and beyond to establish a truly circular and sustainable battery ecosystem.
Sustainable batteries are a key element for environmentally, socially and climate-friendly electromobility. With the digital Battery Pass, we are getting a big step closer to this goal: Important data, such as the climate footprint or information on the conditions of raw material extraction, repairability and recyclability, will be securely stored in it and exchanged among the economic actors along the battery value chain – from raw material extraction to reuse and recycling. This creates transparency around the electric car battery.
Advance the implementation of the European Battery Passport
Developing a timely and holistic guidance on all relevant aspects of the Battery Passport as mandated by the EU Battery Regulation and beyond, by balancing sustainability objectives vs industry feasibility.
Bringing together existing battery passport initiatives of e.g., GBA and Catena-X, to ensure compatibility and symbiotic scaling as well as exchanging and aligning with all major ecosystem participants to achieve maximum impact through commonly accepted multi-stakeholder views
Looking beyond European borders by establishing relationships and exchanging with international regulating and standardizing bodies as well as industry.
Increasing acceptance and awareness of the battery passport by emphasizing its value potential through identification of use cases and benefits along the value chain and several impact dimensions.
Making sure outcomes will be designed to support the creation of other digital product passports in the future.
Data-enabled lifecycle management of vehicle batteries is central to strengthen the effectiveness of the EU battery and automotive industry. It will not only accelerate the scaling of the number of electric vehicles, but will also ensure a productive and environmentally sound use of valuable vehicle traction batteries. This will help EU nations and companies to achieve their climate targets, generate high-quality jobs and reduce import dependencies.
