From being a good steward of the environment and our local communities to responsible resource management.
We believe lithium will continue to play an important role in decarbonization and the shift to electrification. With urgency building for climate change solutions, our 2021 Sustainability Report underscores the critical need for the lithium industry to responsibly meet the growing demand for lithium. Sustainability is and will continue to be a top priority for Livent, reflecting our conviction that it is imperative—and achievable—to expand lithium production in a sustainable way.
This is the third consecutive year that Livent has achieved a Gold sustainability rating and places Livent in the top 5% of the more than 90,000 companies assessed by EcoVadis around the world. EcoVadis assesses sustainability performance across four main categories: Environment, Labor & Human Rights, Ethics and Sustainable Procurement.
• Carbon neutrality by 2040, path to 100% renewable energy and ongoing focus on sustainable water use;
• Pledge to uplift communities and advance social progress and human rights across operations and supply chain;
