Environmental, Social and Governance
Creating sustainable solutions is the core of everything we do. Our efforts go beyond the batteries we develop, we ensure that our actions leave a positive impact on our planet.
We are optimizing our supply chain to be sustainable from beginning to end. Our customers share the same priorities. Together, we are pursuing carbon neutrality by mid-2030 with the following certifications: Carbon neutral production certificate, Proof/certificate for use of renewable energy, IRMA certification (initiative for responsible mining assurance), Auditor to certify carbon neutrality of cell/battery.
A battery’s life doesn’t end after its last charge. Improper disposal wastes resources and can harm the environment. We are developing robust end-of-life solutions to prevent this from happening. To facilitate our lithium-metal recycling, we partnered with Young Poong, to advance research into lithium-metal recycling for solid-state batteries, using surplus lithium metal from Factorial’s manufacturing process.
Factorial is an innovation powerhouse because of our people. With a team who values safety, meritocracy, agility, humility, respect, and transparency, we are reshaping how we’ll energize the communities of the future.

Sustainable supply chain
We are simplifying and regionalizing our supply chain by emphasizing local sourcing, and are exploring collaborations with local lithium suppliers. We require all suppliers to provide Conflict Mineral Policy Statemen. We are actively working to create supplier risk assessment to ensure suppliers are adopting sustainable operations according to ISO, IATF and RBA standards. We will be implementing an audit program for every supplier to ensure transparency and ethical compliance.
