Gravity team visits Cornish & British Lithium facilities

On Friday 4 February, Gravity’s leadership team were delighted to visit Cornwall, to better understand the facilities and processes of both Cornish & British Lithium. The trip was facilitated by the Heart of the South West LEP who promote and influence economic growth, job creation and prosperity across the region.

The exploration of a more sustainable supply chain for the UK’s domestic manufacture of lithium-ion batteries will be critical towards lowering the embedded carbon of batteries, especially as the demand for electrification increases in line with the UK’s transport decarbonisation targets.

Partners across the region are working collaboratively to deliver the many opportunities for tackling climate change for local businesses including Gravity’s commitment to becoming a catalyst for Clean Growth in the region working with partnerships and like-minded companies towards a future powered by clean energy.

Visits such as these are important to connect businesses and projects to realise benefits from a new era of clean growth and stimulate further economic restructuring and supply chain development in the transition to a net zero carbon economy in the UK.

Claire Pearce, Director – Planning & Economic Development for Gravity

Across Cornwall, Somerset, Devon and Dorset we have set out a shared ambition to be the UK’s greenest region, a net-exporter of green energy that our businesses are at the forefront of in the response to climate change. This visit is an example of how businesses might collaborate together to be a world-leading region in delivering clean growth.
