COMMITTED TO THE FUTURE
At Nissan, we are committed to a sustainable future, but there is a lot more to it than just building efficient vehicles. In every
aspect of our business – from our headquarters in Japan to our offices worldwide to our Dealerships in the community– we are
always working towards reducing both our energy consumption and environmental impact.
In our manufacturing facilities
Nissan has manufacturing facilities in 20 countries, and in every one of them we are always looking for ways to increase efficiency and decrease energy use. Renewable energy generated by the sun, wind, water, and biogas are helping to power our plants in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North and South America. The Nissan Energy Savings Collaboration (NESCO) monitors energy loss at our plants and proposes effective countermeasures
designed to reduce our CO2 emissions by 30,000 tons annually. We’ve launched our fourth ultra-efficient car-carrying boat, the Nissei Maru, that uses solar power, is driven by an electronicallycontrolled diesel engine, and is painted with a low-friction coating, all of which leads to savings of up to 1,400 tons of fuel annually.
