Since 2005, Nissan has reduced CO2 emissions for its global corporate activities by 15.4 percent. This puts Nissan well on its way to achieving a 20 percent reduction by fiscal year 2016, part of the Nissan Green Program. For fiscal year 2013, Nissan achieved a 2.0 percent cut in emissions.
Nissan has reduced its carbon footprint by conserving power and moving towards more sustainable sources, such as solar and wind. At Nissan’s Aguascalientes plant in Mexico, it uses wind turbines to power the plant. And, in Japan, it will quadruple the amount of renewable energy it buys by 2016 for use in factories and quick chargers.
This year, Nissan also launched its second EV model, the e-NV200 cargo van in Europe, which complements the best-selling zero-emissions LEAF.
