Building a European automotive battery industry that's better for us
ACC’s mission is to accelerate the transition to sustainable and affordable mobility for all, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Our objective is to innovate and deliver high-performing cells and modules, while helping to drive the industrial and environmental transition to cleaner mobility.
A holistic approach to battery production
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach is rooted in analysis of the battery lifecycle, which identifies our main environmental and social impacts. We take a holistic view of the expectations of our stakeholders – the authorities, our clients, our employees, elected representatives, local communities and Non-Governmental Organisations (“NGOs”). These are the main challenges we’ve identified.
The Challenges we face
On the road to a cleaner mobility
We’ve identified the themes through which we can have the greatest impact - the four pillars of our CSR vision. Several strategies support these pillars and will help us achieve our goals. With our policies, they determine the rules that we, and the people we work with, live by.
