Hithium Battery Production Facility Certified Carbon Neutral
Stationary battery manufacturer Hithium’s production facility at its headquarters in Xiamen, China, has received the globally recognized carbon neutrality certification PAS 2060 (Certificate number: 0412TZH01106). This certification standard builds on established methodologies, according to TÜV Süd, to calculate the plant’s carbon footprint (such as the GHG-Protocol and ISO 14064) and it assesses, where needed, the impact of high-quality offsetting certificates from climate projects (including CDM, JI, GS, and VCS).

The company aims for the factory to serve as an energy storage industry benchmark, raising the standard for sustainable production as one of the earliest battery production sites in China to receive this certification.
Hithium General Manager Jason Wang commented: “We’re very proud to have achieved this certification so quickly and to be setting a high standard for our industry. Our approach to meeting ESG goals and achieving sustainable manufacturing is rooted in our company culture. From company leadership to every team member, whether in research or sales or on the production line, we see reducing our own carbon emissions as a core commitment.”
On the occasion of its carbon neutral plant certification, Hithium also announced its broader carbon neutrality goals:
Carbon neutrality in group operations by 2025
To achieve carbon neutrality in the core operations of the entire group (scope 1 and 2), Hithium will use over 40% renewable electricity, as well as reduce by 15% the average carbon emissions both of its products and across its supply chain (compared to the benchmark year 2022), and a recycling rate of over 20% for scrapped raw materials.
Carbon neutrality in global manufacturing by 2028
Hithium’s goal is to reach 100% use of renewable electricity in the group, with global battery manufacturing bases certified as carbon neutral factories, to reduce by 30% average carbon emissions both of products and in the supply chain (compared to the benchmark year 2022), with a recycling rate of over 40% for scrapped raw materials.
Carbon neutrality throughout the industry chain by 2035
By 2035 Hithium aims to achieve carbon neutrality in the entire chain of the group (scope 1, 2, and 3), throughout the product lifecycle (excluding the use stage), and a recycling rate of over 80% for scrapped raw materials.
As part of its sustainability objectives, the 2019-founded manufacturer also recently registered with the emissions and ESG tracking agency Achilles and joined the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The company’s implementation plan for reaching these goals includes production process improvement, intelligent applications, the increasing use of clean energy and recyclable materials, and low-carbon technology research and development.
