“Symbiosis of people, vehicles and nature” sums up Nissan's vision of an ideal mobility society. Our aim is for our vehicles and business activities to be of benefit, and we will continue our collaborative approach to creating a sustainable mobility society.

Environmental Principle

Nissan's Environmental Philosophy - Symbiosis of people, vehicles and nature

As we strive to understand the environment better, all of us at Nissan bring to our activities a shared concern for people, society, nature and the earth. This commitment and concern is embodied in every Nissan product and in all of the company's operations, including sales, as the driving force of Nissan's ongoing contributions to a better society.

Ultimate Goal

Manage the environmental dependence/impact caused by our operations, and products to a level that can be absorbed by nature, and pass on rich natural capital to future generations.

What we want to be: ”Sincere Eco-Innovator”

Sincere: To address proactively the environmental challenges and reduce the impact on the environment. Eco-innovator: In order to develop a sustainable mobility society, we will provide customers with innovative technology in our products and services.

Nissan’s Environmental Initiatives

To realize the promise of its environmental philosophy “a Symbiosis of People, Vehicles and Nature,” Nissan has promoted a series of midterm environmental action plans under the name “Nissan Green Program (NGP).” Under NGP2016, our previous plan, the company continued taking steps toward its ultimate goal of reducing environmental dependence and impact to levels that nature can absorb. The targets set for four key initiatives under the program, “Zero-emission vehicle penetration”, “Fuel-efficient vehicle expansion”, “Corporate carbon footprint minimization”, and “Natural resource use minimization” were fully achieved.

Environmental Initiative and Framework

With the world population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, communities and the business sector will play growing roles in solving social issues and working to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations. The automobile industry, too, faces an increasingly important responsibility to provide value to society by delivering safe, secure and sustainable mobility for all.
Nissan supports the Sustainable Development Goals.

Carbon Neutral

Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has set the goal to achieve carbon neutrality across the company’s operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050. As part of this effort, by the early 2030s every all-new Nissan vehicle offering in key markets will be electrified.Nissan will pursue further innovations in electrification and manufacturing technology to make progress on the company’s carbon neutrality goal in four strategic areas.
