BEUC | More sustainable batteries

Your substances


From smartphones and toothbrushes to laptops and e-scooters, batteries are present in many consumer products. With the uptake of battery electric vehicles or batteries to store energy at home, we are set to increasingly depend on them in the 21st century. For batteries to successfully power the green transition, risks to consumers and the planet also need to be minimised, such as manufacturing emissions or safety risks.

Batteries, therefore, need to be more sustainable by design. For consumers, this means batteries should first of all be safe, as well as longer lasting, removable, replaceable, reusable and recyclable. The European Commission’s proposal for a regulation on Batteries is a key opportunity to achieve these objectives.
