The Better Environmental Sustainability Targets (BEST) certification standard provides recognition for lead battery manufacturers that meet minimum emission standards and agree to take back used batteries for environmentally sound recycling. The objective is to reduce emissions from lead battery manufacturers and recyclers, and to prevent lead poisoning through an incentive program for these companies.The BEST Standard 1001 is a comprehensive environmental program for lead battery plants. The BEST Standard covers lead emissions, occupational exposures, and a broad range of environmental performance criteria. Participating facilities are subject to annual audits against this performance standard to ensure independent verification.Auditors, who are trained and accredited to provide on-site inspections, conduct independent evaluations on an annual basis. Companies that demonstrate compliance with the BEST Standard1001 are eligible to place an eco-label on their products after entering into a license agreement. Program costs will be borne by the participating companies with charges assessed according to production volume.
