YOKOHAMA, Japan (June 7, 2018) – Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today launched Nissan Sustainability 2022, a plan to reduce the company’s environmental impact, strengthen diversity and inclusion, and enhance governance, in line with the company’s midterm plan, Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022.
This is the first time Nissan has announced a comprehensive sustainability plan, which pulls together all aspects of its environmental, social and governance initiatives into a unified approach.
The plan is anchored by the company’s ongoing Nissan Green Program, which was launched in FY2001 with a long-term vision toward 2050. Nissan Sustainability 2022 will ensure the company is on track to deliver on these goals as it approaches the halfway point, while also expanding the company’s sustainability mindset to include diversity and inclusion, as well as stronger governance.
“Nissan Sustainability 2022 is fully aligned with our midterm objectives of delivering steady growth and leading the automotive industry’s technology evolution,” said Hitoshi Kawaguchi, Nissan senior vice president and chief sustainability officer. “We believe sustainable mobility will help achieve a world with zero emissions and zero fatalities. Our plan, further enhanced by our efforts to be a truly diverse and inclusive company, will make an important contribution to that effort.”
The plan is organized around an environment, social and governance (ESG) framework, criteria commonly used by investors who monitor a company’s value creation.
