Spherity and RCS Global introduce the first Catena-X Certified Battery Passport Solution

London/Dortmund, 16 May 2024

Spherity, a pioneer in decentralized identity management software, and RCS Global, a leader in responsible sourcing and supply chain due diligence, are thrilled to announce that our Battery Passport Solution, Claritas, is the first Catena-X certified Battery Passport. The Catena-X certification allows customers to seamlessly exchange battery passport data across the entire Catena-X ecosystem. With this development, all our battery passports will conform to regulations and comply with Catena-X standards. Our solution is now aligned with several key standards and protocols, including Battery Pass, Cirpass, and the UN Transparency protocol, and it meets international sustainability and ethical sourcing requirements.

Our solution is designed to seamlessly integrate with the Catena-X framework, ensuring industry-wide interoperability and standardization. Featuring an intuitive interface, our software simplifies the registration and management of battery passports on the Catena network, facilitating compliance and fostering innovation within the automotive sector’s circular economy. By leveraging RCS Global’s audit expertise, we enhance supply chain transparency and set a new benchmark for verified supply chain data, battery lifecycle management, sustainability measurement, and the transition towards circular value chains. This strategic alliance promises to revolutionize industry practices, aligning with global sustainability goals.

Claritas Battery Passport Solution is tailored to comply with the EU Battery Regulation. The Battery Passport Solution sets a new standard for supply chain sustainability and compliance management. With a compliance dashboard at its core, it guarantees adherence to stringent global standards. The provision of verifiable battery data ensures the ability to design, build, and market environmentally sound batteries. The integration of an LCA Process bolsters lifecycle efficiency and accuracy. Our solution’s transparency extends through the entire supply chain addressing the entire lifecycle of batteries—from production to disposal and includes carbon footprint declarations, enabling thorough auditability and effective risk management. Enhanced sustainability reporting supports ESG initiatives, while our approach significantly reduces administrative burdens, cutting operational costs. Committed to circular economy principles, our solution champions value-retaining operations, from repair to recycling, ensuring that sustainability is woven into every aspect of the battery life cycle.
