Partnerships and associations
At Johnson Matthey we’re committed to the development of industry leading, green and responsibly sourced cathode materials. To support these efforts, we have joined forces with several leading industry collaborations and alliances.
The European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA) aims to reduce Europe’s dependency on other countries and increase economic resilience by diversifying critical raw material supply from both primary and secondary sources, improving resource efficacy and circularity, whilst also promoting responsible sourcing. We have joined ERMA in support of this vital initiative.
The Global Battery Alliance is a public-private collaboration platform created to help establish a sustainable battery value chain by 2030. Batteries are considered as one of the primary enablers of the 2°C Paris Agreement goal in the transport and power sectors, setting us on the pathway towards achieving the 1.5°C goal. To this end a circular and responsible battery value chain are essential, with action needed today to ensure acceleration of a sustainable battery industry and a level playing field. Johnson Matthey shares the GBA’s view that circular and sustainable battery value chain is essential in the fight against climate change.
RECHARGE is Europe’s industry association for advanced rechargeable and lithium batteries, representing a 360° value chain poised to tackle today’s & tomorrow’s challenges. Johnson Matthey is proud to be an active member of RECHARGE and alongside other members help advocate for the sustainable development of innovative and competitive rechargeable and lithium batteries value chain in Europe.
The Cobalt Institute is a non-profit international association with the purpose of promoting both responsible use and sustainable production of cobalt in all its forms. Representing the voice of the cobalt industry on a broad range of topics, the Cobalt Institute fosters cooperation between key stakeholders and provides independent information related to cobalt resources, use and production. We have joined this association.
In 2021 we partnered with the carbon neutral Formula E team Envision Virgin Racing to combine next generation cathode materials with leading battery technology to create the first ever electric two seater Formula E style race car, powered by eLNO®. With a shared ambition to create a sustainable future, we are proud to be partnered with Envision Virgin Racing and showcase the future of EV technology.
