The International Lithium Association (ILiA) has joined the Global Battery Alliance (GBA) as part of its strategy to develop a global network of key stakeholders and partner associations.
GBA is a multi-stakeholder initiative for a sustainable battery value chain. GBA’s members include the Nickel Institute and Cobalt Institute, raw material producers, battery makers, civil society and more. ILiA is a significant addition to this platform and means that GBA now has representation from all the major battery raw materials associations.
“This is the lithium century and it is imperative that we all work together to ensure that rechargeable batteries are produced sustainably and responsibly”, said Anand Sheth, Founding Chairman of ILiA. “ILiA now shares the GBA platform with over 100 leading organisations supporting a sustainable battery value chain, this is an extremely positive and timely development”, he added.
GBA’s Executive Director, Inga Petersen said, “We are pleased to be joined by the International Lithium Association to be part of our multi-stakeholder platform, providing the voice of the global lithium industry and contribution as part of the entire battery value chain.”
GBA was founded at the World Economic Forum in 2017 and established independently in 2021. It brings together leading organisations from industry, the public and not-for-profit sectors across the battery value chain.
