Emission reduction from corporate activities

CO2 emission reduction from corporate activities

As an automobile manufacturer, Nissan is taking steps to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions from corporate activities by promoting energy efficiency measures and the use of renewable energy.
Based on calculations incorporating the findings of the Fourth Assessment Report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Nissan established the goal of reducing its overall corporate CO2 emissions by 2050.
Also, as part of the Nissan Green Program 2030 (NGP2030), we set the midterm goal of 52% reduction in manufacturing CO2 emissions by 2030. Manufacturing is our largest emissions source, but we are also aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from logistics, offices and dealerships, setting targets and taking action in each area.
In January 2021, Nissan announced the goal to achieve carbon neutrality across the company’s operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050 to contribute to the resolution of global climate change.
