The transformation of the mobility sector is essential in order to meet the Paris Agreement’s goals. A 90% reduction in transport-related emissions by 2050 is needed to achieve climate neutrality. To achieve this, a major contribu tion will come from new technologies: the battery electric vehicle technology is the most promising technology today. The roadmap for the mobility sector therefore focuses on lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). While the global market for this technology is growing rapidly, production and end-of-life are linked to major environmental and social impact concerns. To ensure a just transition, it is crucial to implement high social and environmental standards in production and sourcing along the entire supply chain including end-of-life.
This report is part of the Roadmap for Responsible Sourcing of Raw Materials until 2050 – Mobility Sector.
