Supply Chain GHG Reduction Commitment with FRET 21

EnerSys joined an innovative French initiative called FRET 21, which is working to encourage companies to better integrate the impact of transport into their sustainable development strategy. Over 300 companies have signed this voluntary pledge to reduce transport emissions. EnerSys has committed to reducing the GHG emissions of its French supply chain operations by 12.5% by 2025 with a 2022 baseline as part of the initiative.

While energy is a fundamental input for our products, we are constantly evaluating ways to make our operations more efficient and reduce our energy usage. By maximizing the efficiency of our operations, we not only reduce our environmental footprint but also enhance our bottom line. We prioritize energy-efficient technologies and processes throughout our manufacturing facilities and supply chain, continually seeking innovative solutions to minimize energy consumption.


We are committed to reducing our energy intensity per kWh produced by 25% by 2030 compared to 2020.

*We have achieved a 15% improvement since 2020.


Water is a vital resource to all life, and EnerSys is committed to being a good water steward everywhere we do business. Water plays a crucial role in our manufacturing operations and is used for multiple processes, including preparing electrolytes, plate manufacturing, battery formation and washing finished production equipment and manufacturing areas. It is imperative that we drive efficiency in our operations, reduce our freshwater usage and reuse water wherever possible to minimize our impact on the environment.

In 2023, we continued to monitor and disclose the quantity of water withdrawn from our manufacturing facilities. In 2023, our operations utilized 892 megaliters, marking an absolute reduction of 9.7% from 2022. We prioritize using recycled water over fresh water whenever feasible, with our recycled water usage at 12% in 2023. Furthermore, we are committed to minimizing wastewater discharge from our operations, and we consistently maintain chemical and total dissolved solids levels well below regulatory requirements.


We are committed to reducing our water intensity per kWh of storage produced by 25% by 2030.

We have achieved a 6% improvement since 2020.





Tijuana Mexico Plant

As part of our commitment to the UN CEO Water Mandate, EnerSys is engaging in water reduction and reuse projects in water-stressed regions, like in Tijuana, and we are logging our progress in the UNGC’s Water Action Hub. Tijuana is a state where water resources are often strained as water shutoffs are increasingly common and key reservoirs are nearing all-time lows.15 The team in Tijuana implemented a water reuse project at the plant which is estimated to have reduced the plant’s city water usage by about 4,400 gallons of water per day. That’s enough water to provide more than 5,200 people with the recommended amount of daily drinking water, 3.2 Liters per day.

“This is an important and impactful initiative in a water-stressed state like Tijuana. We’re taking necessary actions to address water scarcity in the communities we operate in and make progress towards our company-wide water intensity goal.”

*Per DOE guidelines, this goal is focused on 5 U.S. plants: Richmond, Warrensburg, Hays, Springfield 1 and Springfield 2. It does not include all EnerSys sites.
