GPBM Nordic on Environment and Sustainability


During the time when everyone, including ourselves, was selling large quantities of alkaline batteries, we discovered the need for a more sustainable and energy-smart alternative. Our rechargeable battery solutions were launched because we believed in their obvious place in a world that is constantly changing, and today we are proud to offer the world's most climate - smart consumer battery. We see it as our responsibility to always be able to offer a greener alternative, whether it is a rechargeable battery, a Nordic Ecolabelled alkaline battery or an LED lamp.


We make it possible for both the consumer and the company to have a simpler and more sustainable everyday life with environmentally friendly products, less "use and throw away" and an efficient use of renewable energy, a freedom far from wall outlets and products that save lives, property and belongings. A greener and safer life for everyone simply.




Batteries - an environmental problem?

The mountain of used batteries with more or less environmentally hazardous substances is growing, and for an ever-increasing proportion of consumers, environmental issues have become an important part of the choice of battery type. Some companies see environmental requirements as an obstacle. For GPBM Nordic, it is just the opposite. The environment is in focus in everything we do, and we see environmental work as a stimulating driving force in our company. The environmental issue is an important argument, and the growing environmental awareness gives us advantages in several areas.


We therefore consider it important to inform our customers that all batteries found in our circuits are and remain a burden to our nature, and we must understand the value of economizing with nature's resources. GPBM Nordic therefore focuses its business on marketing environmentally friendly, rechargeable batteries.

Green Investment: Your choice makes a difference.

As a manufacturer and supplier of consumer products, we see it as our responsibility to offer a better alternative. That's why we've made it easy to label these products with a symbol that means the choice you make plays a role. For yourself and for our planet. In addition, part of the income always goes to projects that build a sustainable future for us, our fellow human beings and the generations that come after ours.




Electricity changes everything

1.2 billion people are currently living in so-called energy poverty. Those hardest hit are people in remote cities without a fixed electricity grid, where access to electricity is minimal or non-existent.


Right now, part of the income from products marked with Green Investment goes to project that TRINE runs in Africa.

The Nordic Ecolabel

The Nordic Ecolabel adorns environmentally friendly products, all of which have been assessed according to the category's special requirements specifications. In the case of disposable batteries, the Nordic Ecolabel means that the batteries have a proven long life and meet strict requirements with regard to the content of environmentally hazardous heavy metals.


An eco-labeled disposable battery thus has a capacity that makes it last longer than a non-eco-labeled disposable battery and is at the same time easier to recover at the end of the battery life cycle




Battery fine at GP Batteries

GP Batteries has, with the help of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (nature conservation and environmental authority), created the Battery Estate - a box for used batteries, which hopefully means that fewer people throw batteries in the rubbish bin.
