CO2 Emission Reduction at Dealers

Nissan is promoting CO2 emission management at all dealerships in Japan, aiming to reduce CO2 emissions by 1% each year
The sales outlets are continually working to increase energy efficiency. Many have adopted high efficiency air conditioning and LED lighting. During renovation work, some outlets have installed insulation films, ceiling fans, lighting systems that make use of natural daylight and insulated roofs. In addition, Nissan sources clean energy for which CO2 emissions and costs have been taken into account through Japan’s Power Producers & Suppliers (PPS) system and began supplying energy to sales outlets.

Environment-friendly outlets - Introduction of renewable energy

In Japan, Nissan is advancing with the establishment of low environmental impact dealerships. In May 2011, Chiba Nissan Motor Co., Ltd's Kita-Narashino dealership installed solar panels with a 10kw generation capacity when the dealer's structure was rebuilt, and soon began to use solar power generated by the panels. An in-store monitor for the management of generated electricity was also installed. The monitor shows how power is produced by the solar panels and how much power is being generated at any time. Favorably received by customers, the monitoring system is easy to understand. It also helps to raise employees' awareness about saving energy; electricity costs have been reduced by about 12% compared to the previous year.

The dealerships of Gunma Nissan Motor Co.,Ltd. such as Tatebayashi also installed solar panels.

Environment-friendly outlets - Lighting systems utilizing natural daylight

Gunma Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. is promoting installation of lighting systems utilizing natural daylight during the renovation work. The system, taking in daylight evenly with ten domed lightning lenses installed on a roof and diffusing it into rooms with prismatic reflection, enables no energy consumption for lighting on sunny days. Also, Gunma Nissan is developing eco-friendly dealer outlets by installing double insulated roofs to reduce energy consumption for air-conditioning.
