Nissan has announced its new six-year environmental plan - the Nissan Green Program 2016 (NGP 2016) - that will focus on the areas of reduction of carbon footprint, a shift to renewable energy and an increase in the diversity of resources used by Nissan.
NPG 2016, the company's third environmental mid-term plan, aims to achieve cumulative sales of 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles across the Renault-Nissan alliance and 35% fuel economy improvement compared with 2005 on a corporate average for all Nissan vehicles sold in Japan, China, Europe and the United States by the end of fiscal year 2016. The plan also aims for a 20% reduction per vehicle of CO2 emission of corporate activities compared with 2005 and to raise the usage rate of recycled materials to 25%.
"More consumers are demanding products in line with their values, including cars and trucks with a lower carbon footprint. At the same time, we are using technology to make our factories greener and more efficient," said Nissan president and CEO, Carlos Ghosn. "Nissan wants to be part of the solution toward a sustainable society - for the sake of the planet and as a significant competitive advantage and a strategic differentiator in the global manufacturing sector."
