Leclanché provides key technology to reduce the environmental impact of our customers for cleaner mobility and energy production. Further to this, we are constantly striving to find ways to reduce our own ecological footprint, at both company and product level.

Environmental Impact

Circular economy ​

A circular economy is an economic system based on the reuse and recycling of materials in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.

Reduced Environmental Impact 

Leclanché uses a unique water-based process for cell manufacturing which replaces the need for toxic solvents.

We carry out a thorough evaluation of the environmental impact of our batteries, as well as company-wide green-house gas (GHG) emissions, both direct and indirect.

Health & Safety 

The health and safety of Leclanché’s employees and stakeholders is a key priority for us.

Certified Safety at Every Site

Leclanché is certified in accordance with ISO 45001  for both production sites in Willstätt and Yverdon-les-Bains. ISO 45001 is the standard for management systems for occupational health and safety. It aims to reduce occupational injuries, promoting and protecting physical and mental health.
