Responsible Battery Materials – Australia’s Competitive Advantage?

23/09/2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

An FBICRC webinar on establishing Australia’s battery materials as ethical, socially responsible and environmentally sustainable

Join the FBICRC for a webinar to share the results of the scene setting project conducted by the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney and The University of Melbourne: “Certification and Life Cycle Analysis of Australian Battery Materials – Drivers and Options”.  A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

The study assesses the drivers and schemes for sustainability certification of battery minerals and the role of life cycle assessment in supporting social and environmental performance claims for the battery value chain.

Following an overview of the study’s findings, Project Lead Damien Giurco, Professor of Resource Futures at the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney, will chair an international panel session with Claudia Becker, Purchasing and Supplier Network Sustainability, BMW (Germany), Jessica Robinson, General Manager, Critical Minerals Facilitation Office (Canberra) and report co-author Elsa Dominish, Research Principal, UTS Institute for Sustainable Futures (Sydney).
