Nissan brings its innovation and excitement to the ‘Race to Zero’
1 September 2021
Earlier this month, Nissan announced that it has joined the ‘Race to Zero’ campaign supported by the United Nations, thereby accelerating the company’s full electrification and carbon neutrality goals, and becoming the first Japanese automaker to join the campaign.
By joining the Race to Zero, Nissan is now part of the largest global alliance of companies, cities, investors, regions, and universities committed to working together towards halving global emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the very latest.
Nissan President and CEO Makoto Uchida commented: “To accelerate global efforts to achieve carbon neutrality, Nissan will continue to address various issues in a responsible manner, including further promotion of electrification. Also, at Nissan we are determined to fulfil our role as a company that will continue to be needed by our stakeholders in the future.
Nissan will further continue its work with partners globally in innovating and developing the electric ecosystem around EVs, covering renewable energy generation, energy storage, 2nd life uses for EV batteries and continued development of the ‘4R’ business model - Reuse, Refabricate, Resell, Recycle - for the benefit of communities.
