Sustainability

Century Yuasa is committed to sustainability and minimising the environmental impact associated with the manufacture and supply of lead acid batteries within Australia. This commitment is the driving force behind the implementation of the following initiatives:
 
 

Battery Recycling

98% of your used lead acid battery is recyclable.
 
Century Yuasa launched a nationwide recycling program in 2008 and has since increased our recycling rate of used lead acid batteries year on year.

Our network of more than 1,100 Battery Recycling Centres makes it easy for businesses and individuals to recycle their old battery free of charge and help us play our part in protecting our precious environment.

 

Australian Packaging Covenant

The Australian Packaging Covenant (APC) is a sustainable packaging initiative which aims to change the culture of business to design more sustainable packaging, increase recycling rates and reduce packaging litter.

NPI Reporting

There has been increasing community demand to know about toxic substances emitted to the local environment. Australian, state and territory governments have implemented National Environment Protection Measures (NEPMs), which help protect or manage particular aspects of the environment. Australian industries are required to monitor measure and report their emissions under the legislation which governs the National Pollutants Inventory (NPI).
