RELiON Battery Joins 1% For The Planet – Gives Back To The Environment
RELiON Battery, a Rock Hill-based global lithium battery provider, announced that they have become a member of the international non-profit organization, 1% for the Planet, pledging to donate 1% of annual sales to fund eco-friendly, earth-conscious causes and organizations around the globe.
“We are thrilled to be a member and support a forward-thinking organization like 1% for the Planet. This partnership is a natural fit for our core values. We, along with our customers, live and breathe adventure and relish the opportunities that our planet provides. Our tagline, Challenge Your Limits, reflects our philosophy to push yourself to greatness. So, it’s only logical to give back and support organizations making a real difference,” said RELiON CEO Paul Hecimovich.
Members of 1% for the Planet contribute one percent of annual sales directly to any of the approved nonprofit environmental organizations in the network. Nonprofits are approved based on referrals, track record, and environmental focus. Thousands of nonprofits worldwide are currently approved.
“Currently, only 3% of total philanthropy goes to the environment and, only 5% of that comes from businesses. The planet needs bigger support than this, and our growing network of member businesses is doing its valuable part to increase giving and support on the ground outcomes. We're excited to welcome RELiON Battery to our global movement of over 2,700 businesses," said Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet.
RELiON’s membership with 1% for the Planet is only the start of a long-term mission for positive environmental impact. RELiON calls this quest Limitless Blue – blue battery, blue sky, blue ocean – because action has no limits.
“Limitless Blue is about reducing our impact on the planet and using our business for a force of good moving forward. We face a long list of environmental challenges around the world. It is in all of our interests to work towards creating a healthier planet and we believe business has a responsibility to give back,” explained Hecimovich.
RELiON’s lithium iron phosphate batteries offer several advantages over other technologies in terms of resource consumption and safety and have great potential to help reduce carbon emissions when used in wind and solar power systems. Most importantly, LiFePO4 batteries are inherently stable and non-combustible and free from dangerous and messy outgassing, fumes, and leaks.
“RELiON customers enjoy being in nature, living off-the-grid, fishing, sailing, and much more. We feel that given the environmental friendliness of lithium batteries, it is our duty to do better as a business, making our batteries as sustainable as possible for our customers who enjoy being outdoors,” added Hecimovich.
