UnirossUniross and WWF rechargeable Ni-MH batteries : Uniross, the European leader in rechargeable batteries and WWF the global conservation organization, have announced today a licensing partnership for a period of 3 years. This European partnership will extend across 40 countries and will allow for the creation of a series of initiatives to raise public awareness about: the ecological advantage of rechargeable Ni-MH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries and collecting and recycling old batteries. Uniross has committed to fund WWF to promote several mutually relevant environmental initiatives around the theme of sustainable consumption. There are real environmental advantages in using and recycling rechargeable batteries.

As part of the licensing agreement Uniross will launch a range of rechargeable batteries and chargers carrying the WWF logo. The use of rechargeable batteries considerably reduces the impact on the environment compared to single use, disposable batteries. In fact, the use of one rechargeable battery in some applications can replace the use of up to 1000 disposable batteries. Therefore using rechargeable batteries significantly reduces the consumption of raw materials, and the quantity of batteries to collect and recycle. Another important advantage of rechargeable batteries is the amount of reusable material they contain which is superior to that of a disposable/single use battery, 75% in a rechargeable battery 60% in a disposable battery.

Uniross also offers portable energy solutions dedicated to the industrial market. Based in Lognes in France, the company generates 75% of its sales on the international markets via its subsidiaries (UK, Italy, Germany, China, USA, Hong Kong and South Africa) and its partner network.

Equally, Uniross is looking into the conditions of its own employees. Respectful of different values and cultures of its employees, Uniross has set up a social charter based on the International Standard SA 8000 (working overtime, against child labour)."We are very proud of our association with WWF in promoting the use of rechargeable batteries and their recycling. This partnership is connected with the policies that we already implement daily in our company, in the development of our 'green' products and with our European associations trying to increase the level of recycling" says Carole Courtin, Uniross Communication Manager.
