Marcela Sepúlveda, Community Relations Manager of CleanTech Lithium, said, "We are honoured to win this award which recognises CTL's commitment to producing battery-grade lithium in Chile with a uniquely sustainable ESG approach embedded throughout our business. We believe lithium production should be as green as the electromobility solution it is intended to enable.

"Our approach is aligned with Chile's National Lithium Strategy, from sustainable extraction utilising Direct Lithium Extraction technology to putting the rights of communities at the heart of our decision-making. We recently announced our alliance with the Colla territorial communities for the first co-created mining model for lithium extraction in Chile and we look forward to maintaining this momentum into 2024."
