Industrial batteries are used in electric vehicles, refrigerators, solar panels and other energy-storage devices.
They can help provide energy-saving features like air-conditioning or power from the grid.
They are also crucial in the development of renewable energy.
But the batteries that are widely used in the energy industry are often made in countries with poor labor standards.
In an effort to help ensure that the world’s most advanced manufacturing is more competitive, the United States has proposed that the leading industrial batteries manufacturers should join the Paris agreement.
They have until November 1 to decide.
What does the Paris Accord mean?
It is the first international agreement to address climate change.
The accord was agreed in 2015 and aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2050.
The agreement also aims to prevent the spread of dangerous and potentially harmful pollution.
In 2018, the U.S. and more than 30 other countries ratified the pact, which came into force in 2020.
The U.N. climate talks, which began in Lima in November, will continue in Bonn, Germany, in December.
The goal is to hold an annual conference in 2018.
The Paris agreement was reached after years of talks, in which the United Nations and several countries, including the European Union, joined to help reduce greenhouse gases.
