This led the World Customs Organization to develop standards for a secure global trade. One element of these measures is the certification as an Authorized Economic Operator (AEO), which verifies VARTA’s reliability and trustworthiness and ensures expedited processing of customs formalities. VARTA Consumer Batteries has set high standards for environmentally friendly development, resource-saving production, safety, durability and effective waste disposal. With the most advanced technologies they can now reduce and even prevent negative effects on the environment. This is reflected in VARTA’s environmental policy.
