Lithium

Sustainability Monitor

Owing to its use in high tech applications such as Li-ion batteries, lithium will play a crucial role in aiding the transition to a low-carbon economy. Driven by this, the sustainability of the supply chain experiences a greater level of scrutiny as consumers demand the uppermost environmental standards and compliance from their lithium.

Roskill’s Lithium Sustainability Monitor examines the key environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors facing the lithium supply chain. It includes detailed, asset-by-asset, benchmarking analysis of energy intensity, CO2 emissions and water usage of current producers and future projects, allowing the reader to gauge the green credentials or concerns for a particular asset. It also discusses the broader sustainability issues facing the industry and looks at how the industry can transition to a more sustainable footing, as it grows, refining centres expand to more geographic locations, producers switch to more efficient fuel sources, miners decrease their reliance on shipping feedstock long distances or as more renewable sources of power are introduced.
