Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., innovating for a cleaner, safer, and more inclusive world, is strengthening a commitment to sustainability at the heart of its company and as a critical enabler in achieving its long-term goal, Nissan Ambition 2030. The Nissan Sustainability Report 2022 summarises the company’s strategy and actions to satisfy environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.
Nissan published a materiality matrix in the report, which examined Nissan’s most significant value and influence on society and the environment, as well as how they impact the corporation. “Nissan is dedicated to being a truly sustainable firm, which is key to the trust put in us by all stakeholders,” said Joji Tagawa, chief sustainability officer. Our accomplishments and development over the last year demonstrate how sustainability is central to our purpose-led growth strategy, and how long-term value creation is generated at the nexus of innovation and sustainability. We will step up our efforts to solve the critical concerns we have discovered.”
Tagawa confirmed Nissan’s goals to reach carbon neutrality through measures where Nissan can provide the greatest value, such as lowering product exhaust emissions and introducing electric versions of all new models by the early 2030s. The business will advance battery and vehicle technology while also developing programmes like as 4R and Blue Switch to improve the EV ecosystem. Other goals include creating technology to improve vehicle safety, making these technologies more available to customers, and delivering inclusive mobility solutions to ensure that everyone has access to safe and dependable transportation.
Nissan’s ESG initiatives include reducing its carbon footprint across the whole value chain, with Nissan being the first Japanese carmaker to join the United Nations-backed Race to Zero worldwide campaign. Nissan seeks to boost the use of renewable energy to decrease emissions and empower society with safe energy management solutions by cooperating with diverse industries, communities, and governments.
Nissan also announced the introduction of a sustainable financing structure to allow fundraising activities focused on environmentally friendly product development, technology, and new mobility services to support these measures.
Respect for human rights as the cornerstone of corporate culture is central to the company’s sustainability programmes and Ambition 2030. Nissan will step up efforts to guarantee that workers and partners may fully realise their potential in a diverse and inclusive environment.
To address broader societal and future trends, Nissan will convene a panel of ESG experts today at its Global Headquarters in Yokohama to discuss the critical importance of sustainability, generating ideas to combat climate change, and addressing these pressing issues through collaborative partnerships. The Nissan Sustainability Seminar 2022 panel discussion will be available online in English and Japanese.
