Sales of Nissan Green Parts in Japan

Nissan Green Parts is the name given to still usable parts that Nissan recovers from end-of-life vehicles and sells after reconditioning.
In fiscal 1998 and 1999, the first years Nissan Green Parts were available, sales reached only 2 million yen, however in fiscal 2013 grew to ¥1.5 billion.
This growth demonstrates that customers recognize Nissan Green Parts as a reasonable option for use in repairs of their vehicles. We plan to improve the matching rate between the parts collected by recyclers and our customers' needs, and make further efforts to give customers exactly what they want.

Bumper recovery and recycling in Japan

Nissan is working to collect and recycle used plastic bumpers obtained during the repair and replacement of vehicle parts at dealers nationwide. The collected bumpers are recycled into plastic parts for new vehicles through a recycling process. These efforts were begun at dealerships in 1992, and are becoming firmly entrenched.
