Sustainability at Nissan

Nissan has always recognized the critical role that businesses play in society and we are determined to do our part.

Our goal is to empower mobility and to create social value for all stakeholders through our longstanding commitment to innovation and our outstanding technological expertise.

When we combine our ESG approach with our unique Nissan mindset, we empower journeys for our customers and for society as a whole. In doing so, we aim to create a cleaner world where mobility is completely electrified, a safer world where people taking journeys are protected by innovative technologies, and an inclusive world where people are engaged, healthy and happy.

Sustainability Strategy

At Nissan, top management regularly discusses key societal and environmental themes in order to determine which key issues Nissan and all its group companies should address as both a global corporation and an automobile manufacturer, and then ensure that the results are reflected in its sustainability strategy.
