November 15, 2023: China’s Contemporary Amperex Technology said on November 9 its chairman and general manager, Robin Zeng, has been honoured by the Nobel Sustainability Trust Foundation (NST).
Zeng has been awarded this year’s outstanding contribution in sustainability award for his work in support of “global transportation electrification and the energy revolution”, CATL said.
Zeng said he regarded the award as a recognition of CATL’s activities in the development of battery technologies.
NST said the body’s objective is to inspire individuals and organizations to develop sustainable technologies in areas such as energy.
The trustees of the NST, formerly known as the Nobel Charitable Trust, include members of the Nobel family.
In July, CATL’s chief scientist and co-president Wu Kai and his team were honoured for contributions to lithium ion battery safety by the European Patent Office.
