Statement on Biden's battery supply chain push

Hi Martha,
If you're covering the Biden administration's multi-agency push to spur
more U.S. battery manufacturing and sustainable mining, please consider the
following quote from the executive director of the Responsible Battery
Coalition <> (RBC). The RBC is
a group whose mission is to advance the responsible production, transport,
sale, use, reuse, recycling and resource recovery of batteries and other
energy storage devices. Members include *Ford*, *Honda*, *FedEx*, *AutoZone*,
*O'Reilly Auto Parts*, *Clarios* and more.

"As the Administration develops a strategic plan for our domestic
automobile batteries supply, sustainable battery recycling programs that
consider the entire life-cycle of the battery must be included to preserve
and extend the life of these critical resources while also protecting our
environment." -
*Steve Christensen, Executive Director of the Responsible Battery Coalition*

Steve is also available for briefings and interviews if you'd like to dive
further into the topic. Please let me know if you are interested in an
interview and I'd be happy to facilitate!
