EnerSys, a global leader in stored energy solutions, has released its 2022 Sustainability Update, showcasing substantial progress on key environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The report reinforces the Company’s commitment to building a sustainable future, everywhere for everyone.

“Our sustainability initiatives push us to be more efficient, accelerate the development of innovative solutions for our customers, and build a stronger, more diverse, and more engaging workplace for all of our employees,” said EnerSys President & CEO David M. Shaffer. “I’m incredibly proud of the progress we are making.”
The 2022 Sustainability Update reveals EnerSys' progress towards the goals established in the 2021 report, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving energy efficiency, and implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.
A significant achievement outlined in the update is the decoupling of production from energy consumption. This has enabled EnerSys to consume fewer resources while producing greater volumes of high-performing energy systems and batteries for its growing customer base.
EnerSys has also improved efficiencies by reducing the amount of water needed to manufacture products. In 2022, EnerSys was able to save a year’s worth of drinking water required for a city of over 12,000 people (compared to 2021 business as usual baselines).*
“While improving efficiency has always been a core part of our DNA, a little over 30 months into our formal ESG efforts we are really starting to see the results of our strategy; with notable positive impacts for our people, the planet and our bottom line,” said Samuel Shiroff, Senior Director of Global Sustainability at EnerSys.
By prioritizing sustainability across its operations, EnerSys is driving positive change and paving the way for a better world for future generations.
