Milwaukee, WI – Clarios, a leader in advanced energy storage solutions, has joined the United Nations Global Compact – a voluntary initiative that encourages companies to develop, implement and disclose responsible business practices. By joining the compact, Clarios pledges to lead on 10 universal sustainability principles and uphold responsibilities in four areas: human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
“The Compact’s mission and principles directly align with Clarios’ values and our blueprint for a more sustainable future,” said Adam Muellerweiss, Clarios’ executive director of sustainability, industry and government relations. “We are committed to further integrating these principles into our strategy, culture and day-to-day operations, to ensure our business practices continue to be good for people, the planet and business.”
Joining the compact reflects the company’s decades-long commitment to corporate sustainability and environmental stewardship.

Clarios is also a founding member of the Responsible Battery Coalition, uniting businesses, academics and organizations to promote responsible management of today’s and tomorrow’s batteries.
