Power Tool Batteryback was an initiative of the Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI), and was funded by the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.

ABRI is a not-for-profit association, made up of industry, government and environment groups, and was established in 2008 to promote responsible environmental management of batteries at end of life.

ABRI members – Planet Ark, EcoActiv, MRI and Australia Post worked together to deliver the program on behalf of ABRI.
