Getting Charged Up For A New Non-Profit
This summer, Asher was honored to help launch a new nonprofit, the Responsible Battery Coalition. Formed in April 2017, RBC is committed to the responsible management of batteries across their entire lifecycle, from resource extraction to recycling. Included are lead-acid vehicle batteries found in cars and boats, lithium-ion batteries in electronics, as well as new battery technology that hasn’t been imagined yet. Among RBC’s growing list of member companies: Honda, Ford, Walmart, Advance Auto Parts, O’Reilly Auto Parts and founding member Johnson Controls, a global manufacturer of batteries.
