A new contract with planet Earth
Sustainability drives our actions. APS is dedicated to implementing 100% renewable energy sources in our Polish factoriy and has made significant strides towards this goal. As a leading producer of consumer batteries in Europe, we are also committed to reducing our carbon footprint in all aspects of our operations. Because there is no planet B.
Clean and green power
Our green commitment is evident in the actions we take, such as the windmill on our Belgian factory premises, which compensates for 25% of our energy consumption in Belgium. Additionally, we have built a small solar farm for our Polish factory, which will generate up to 110 MWh and cover the energy consumption of the Polish plant. Furthermore, all electricity used in our production process is sourced from renewable energy sources. We are proud to be at the forefront of promoting sustainability and demonstrating the significant impact that small actions can have on our environment.

A plastic free world
In our determination to play a part in creating a plastic-free world, we are taking proactive steps to eliminate single-use plastics from our packaging process.
Our goal is to reduce the amount of waste and single-use plastics in all our consumer packs, as we strive towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future. The result? eneloop's battery packs and charger packs are only distributed in 100% recyclable cardboard as from 2023.
A carbon neutral organization
To further reduce our impact on our planet, we are actively examining the carbon footprint of our entire organization, from incoming materials to transports, production lines, offices and the waste stream that enters the market.
Our aim is to set and achieve goals to reduce our carbon footprint across all company processes and implement sustainable solutions for a greener future.
Local raw materials and production
Our choice and use of local European raw materials and production also results in environmental benefits and a significant reduction of our carbon footprint. Additionally, it offers reduced transportation costs, support for the local economy, improved quality control and faster production times. Sourcing raw materials and producing goods locally helps create a more sustainable approach to production, with care for the environment.
Clean water and sanitation
Water is a precious resource. Our sustainable efforts include not only enhancing the quality of our wastewater but also reducing our water consumption.
A circular economy
The way to a more sustainable future is only possible if we use our resources thoughtfully. The leading circular economy principles - reuse, recharge and recycle, should be deployed as much as possible, if possible.
APS is actively collaborating with European battery recycle agencies and is pleased to be an active participant in lawmaking, collection rates and collection agencies. The use of plastic material is reduced to a minimum and where needed we want to only use recycled plastics.
