The Transition to a Sustainable Global Future has Begun

Things that previously seemed to be out of reach – international environmental cooperation and reliable, affordable, clean energy – are now possible. To limit average global temperature rises to 1.5°C, the world needs to transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. Lithium battery technology and energy storage enables this sustainable transformation.

Energy storage is the missing link in the renewable energy ecosystem. The challenge with renewable energy is that it comes from intermittent sources. Solar power is harnessed when the sun shines, and wind power when the wind blows – not necessarily when there is a peak in energy demand.

By storing energy when it is abundant, price-competitive, and sustainable, our customers can take the necessary steps to reduce use of fossil fuels and save money at the same time.

We are enabling endless energy.

Empowering a Sustainable World

Polarium enables customers to replace harmful lead-acid batteries and fossil fuels. Our most important contribution to a sustainable future is helping decrease our customers’ carbon footprint with our lithium-powered energy storage solutions.

We work with a lifecycle approach to our product portfolio, meaning that we continuously assess our environmental impacts at a product level. This helps us detect and reduce any potential harm to the planet. We know that our products have more to offer, even at their end of their service lives - which is why we make them fully recyclable.

All Polarium’s solutions and products are made to have an extraordinarily long lifetime and designed to stand the test of time. The energy turn-around losses from our batteries are only a few percentage points, which is superior to other lithium batteries, (normally up to 5%), and lead-acid batteries, (normally up to 30%).

We set industry standards by providing energy efficient and recyclable products.

Our Goal Is Net-zero Emissions

Global carbon emissions must be halved by 2030 to limit global warming and stay within a 1.5°C climate change scenario. At Polarium, we act strategically to stay within that threshold. For that reason, each year we quantify our emissions in accordance with the GHG Protocol and work to develop ambitious reduction targets.

Throughout 2020, we have tracked and measured all our emissions, to have reliable and structured data as the baseline for future environmental work and improvements. We have extensive expertise of how to reduce our environmental footprint and grow our business at the same time.

We have a target to be carbon neutral from our direct emissions (Scope 1) and indirect emissions (Scope 2) by 2030, as defined by the GHG Protocol. To reach this target, we will improve our sustainability policies and set several strategies during 2021.

UN Global Compact

Polarium is committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. We incorporate the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into our strategies, policies and procedures, as well as establish a culture of integrity.
