Nissan connects

Nissan participates in “Race to Zero”, the United Nations Climate Protection Initiative. The company is the first Japanese car manufacturer among the companies involved and thus accelerates their own way into complete electrification and CO2 neutrality.

As part of the “Business Ambition for 1.5 °”, Nissan is also aimed at limiting global global warming to a maximum of 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to the pre-industrial level. For this purpose, the company has also joined the “Science Based Targets” initiative (SBTI). The SBTI has validated the CO2 single-saving targets across the Nissan Celsius, which corresponds to the latest findings of climate science.

“By joining SBTI and participation in these campaigns, we reaffirm our determination to cooperate with like-minded companies and local governments around the world. We want to master the challenges of climate change and realize a sustainable society, “explains Nissan President and CEO Makoto Uchida. To achieve CO2 neutrality, Nissan continues to tackle various topics responsible way. This also belongs to the worldwide promotion of electrification. “We at Nissan want to be a company that will be needed in the future.”

CO2 neutral up to 2050

At the beginning of the year, Nissan announced to be by 2050 CO2-neutral – throughout the business and over the life cycle of its products. For this purpose, initiatives such as Nissan EV36Zero are to contribute: The EV Competence Center, which is built in the UK and to serve as a blueprint for the automotive industry of the future, combines the production (new) electric vehicles and high-voltage batteries with the use of renewable energies. Nissan invests around one billion British pounds (surrounded by around 1.17 billion euros).

“Brouses and immediate measures are required to limit the effects of climate change and to enable a sustainable future for all of us,” explains Alberto Carrillo Pineda, Managing Director and Co-founder of SBTI. “Nissan follows more than 700 companies as the first Japanese automobile manufacturer worldwide, which work on ambitious, scientifically sound emission reduction goals. Through this climate-scientific orientation, Nissan shows that the company is ready and will to contribute its part to achieving the Paris Agreement. All other companies worldwide must take action immediately in order to increase their climate goals and significantly reduce their emissions to achieve a net zero target before 2050.”

The designated COP26 President Alok Sharma supplements: “It is fantastic that Nissan, Race To Zero” connects. With the production of batteries for electric cars in northeast, the company assumes a pioneering role in switching to net zero emissions throughout the United Kingdom. Nissan is now part of the largest global alliance of companies, cities, investors, regions and universities. They have undertaken to work together on the halving of global CO2 emissions by 2030 and to achieve no later than 2050 net zero emissions. The UK COP26, the Great Britain in November in Glasgow is a turning point: we have to limit the average increase in temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius, gain alive by resoluting and long-term strategies for a way present in climate neutrality.”

Pioneer from tradition

As early as 2010, the Leaf rolled the world’s first electric car for the mass market on the street. With the Coupe-Crossover Ariya, another e-car from Nissan will appear in 2022. By the beginning of the 2030s, the manufacturer wants to electrify all its new vehicles in the key markets Japan, China, USA and Europe.

In addition to the development of new vehicles and technologies, Nissan wants to continue his work with partners around the world to further develop the ecosystem around electric cars. In addition to the use of renewable energies, the energy storage as well as the second use of electric batteries fall by reuse, reprocessing, resale and recycling.
