Mercedes-Benz, like other global automakers, has its own long-term strategy for electromobilization and decarbonization of outgoing products and production. This German automaker has this strategy called «Ambition2039». From its very name it is clear that its final implementation will be around the time cutoff at which most European countries will ban the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles. By this time, all Mercedes-Benz products and production should be carbon neutral. Speaking in Russian, factories powered by electricity from renewable sources, or from hydrogen generation, will only produce electrified cars — battery and hydrogen.

Many companies consider it unacceptable to buy raw materials from companies, the extraction of which does not respect fundamental human rights, in particular the use of child labor, and also does not restore the ecological balance in the area of mines and GOKs. Has already been created previously

Mercedes-Benz AG offers a holistic approach that promotes the socially and environmentally sound recovery of cobalt and lithium. The company will require its raw material counterparties to adhere to the strictest sustainability standards, for which the Responsible Minerals Mining Initiative (IRMA) has been established, one of the key criteria for supplier decision-making and contracting with suppliers in raw material supply chains. According to it, the entire supply chain will be audited for compliance with these standards.

Decrease the percentage of cobalt.

Another pillar of the strategy is to reduce the proportion of cobalt in batteries. It will be problematic to get rid of it at all, but you can significantly reduce its percentage in the battery.

Everything is clear and understandable, and it is clear why and in whose direction. And in principle, it cannot be otherwise.
