Responsible Sourcing

Supply chain strategy

As a business with worldwide operations, Nissan has a supply chain that extends across the globe. We promote consistency in purchasing activities throughout the global supply chain, sharing our vision and policy with business partners and strategically collaborating with them to ensure their adoption.

We aim to achieve sustainable growth built on a foundation of mutual trust with its business partners. We listen closely to and work with our suppliers as equal partners, developing and maintaining cooperative and competitive relations that enable us to implement best practices.

Responsible Minerals Sourcing

Nissan’s goal is to conduct ethical, social and environmentally conscious business practices at every level of our global supply chain. In 2013, Nissan moved quickly to establish a policy against use of conflict minerals and published the policy on its website. Following this in July 2020, it formulated and published its new Global Minerals Sourcing Policy Statement.

Based on its Global Minerals Sourcing Policy Statement, Nissan references to OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Supply Chains of Minerals from Conflict-Affected and High-Risk Areas to implement due diligence related to minerals sourcing in its supply chain. The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance has joined the RMI since 2021, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has joined the RMI in the new framework of the partnership with Renault after that, and will work with its suppliers to assess risks and will strengthen its efforts to take corrective actions furthermore whenever issues are identified.​
