Nissan cuts global CO2 emissions by 22.6pc

DUBAI, June 22, 2015

Nissan Motor achieved a 22.6 percent cut in CO2 when compared to fiscal year 2005, thus achieving its goal to reduce carbon emissions from corporate activities by 20 percent during that period.

Nissan continues to work toward achieving its environmental targets set forth in the company’s action plan, Nissan Green Program 2016 (NGP2016), through a number of innovative sustainability initiatives in following key areas:

One of Nissan’s CO2 emission goals is to increase the usage rate of renewable energy in its global business activities to nine percent by fiscal year 2016. Nissan is utilizing a number of proven forms of sustainable energy generation to help minimize its corporate carbon footprint.

One example of this is Nissan Mexico’s Aguascalientes A1 Plant, which has manufactured 500,000 vehicles through the use of clean energies, making it the first automotive company in Mexico, as well as the first manufacturing facility of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, to achieve this milestone.

The Nissan Energy Saving Collaboration (Nesco) conducts annual surveys (starting 2003 in Japan and 2013 in Europe, Mexico and China) to measure energy loss at Nissan plants in order to develop ongoing new energy-saving countermeasures.

Nesco has also been used at five Renault and Alliance plants, including AVTOVAZ, UAG and RSM, which have already seen excellent results. Nesco’s area of focus will expand to include waste water loss and waste reduction, in addition to energy loss and CO2 reduction.

Zero emission vehicle penetration

Nissan is improving sustainable mobility through the widespread use of zero emission vehicles. The Nissan LEAF electric vehicle has the ability to safely and conveniently supply electricity stored within its high-capacity lithium-ion batteries to a home through the LEAF to Home power supply system.

In addition, Nissan’s “No Charge to Charge” program in the United States provides free access to selected charging stations for two years with the lease or purchase of a new Nissan LEAF in numerous cities including Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco and Seattle.

In 2014, the company further expanded zero-emission mobility with the introduction of the e-NV200 in the European and Japanese markets. The versatile e-NV200, like the LEAF, has the potential to be used as a mobile power source.

The Nissan Green Program 2016 (NGP2016), launched in fiscal year 2011, is guiding Nissan’s efforts to reduce the company’s environmental impact and resource consumption from global corporate activities while advancing ecological harmony.

The company is dedicated to improving in four main areas: zero-emission vehicle penetration, fuel-efficient vehicle expansion, corporate carbon footprint minimization and new natural resource use minimization. – TradeArabia News Service
