Johnson Matthey’s technology enables all innovations of the power train on the decarbonisation journey.

For example, today there are around 11m electric vehicles on the world’s roads, but that figure is expected to increase to 145m by 2030. For that reason, we are investing hundreds of millions of pounds into our Battery Materials business while holding advanced conversations with a number of well-known battery and car manufacturers to deliver the next generation of battery power.

By 2050 the world will also need eight times more hydrogen than is produced today, for both the transport and energy needs of the future. JM is perfectly placed to build on our leading position in all forms of hydrogen production and fuel cells technology.

But the world’s transport system is not going to decarbonise overnight and our catalytic converters will continue to improve air quality from existing and new internal combustion engines for the next decade and beyond, especially as governments continue to introduce strict new regulations.

We are well positioned to help the world tread a more sustainable path. Right now, over 80% of our products contribute to four UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In June 2021 we announced a new sustainability strategy that will see over 95% of our product sales, and 95% of our R&D spend, aligned with these four priority SDGs by 2030.

We will do this whilst also being net zero in our own operations by 2040.
