The commitment is to being the preferred supplier for energy storage solutions, ensuring safe, healthy, and environmentally friendly business practices, delivering high-quality products, and maintaining a focus on continuous improvement and open communication.

Climate Related Targets
In this context, Exide Technologies has unveiled a strategic initiative aimed at mitigating both direct emissions and those linked to purchased energy, commonly referred to as Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. With a steadfast commitment to environmental responsibility, the company has established a binding target of achieving a 30% reduction in emissions by the year 2030. This initiative not only underscores Exide's commitment to minimizing its ecological footprint but also signifies substantial progress towards aligning with the European Union's 2050 climate neutrality objectives. 

Furthermore, Exide Technologies is dedicated to enhancing the sustainability of its operations by ensuring a minimum of 20% of its energy consumption derives from renewable energy, generated by the company (or on its behalf), by 2030. The company pledges ongoing efforts to increase this proportion through a series of environmentally focused initiatives, demonstrating its proactive approach in fostering a greener and more sustainable future.

Renewable Energies Production
The seamless integration of renewable energies is at the heart of the strategy and with operating five photovoltaic installations in Portugal and Spain, the company is showcasing a commitment to renewable energy and reduced carbon emissions. These installations prove Exide's dedication to a more sustainable & greener world.
