CARING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The report highlighted increased use of renewable power, more recycled materials in new models, and growing electric vehicle penetration. Nissan’s success in reducing emissions, promoting zero-emission vehicles, and saving energy at its facilities has made it the highest-performing automotive company tracked by the Carbon Disclosure Project, which works with thousands of companies to tackle climate change.
“We aim at delivering further environmental progress in addition to promoting all electric vehicles,” said Hitoshi Kawaguchi, Nissan Chief Sustainability Officer.
Earlier, the company had signed a historic MoU with the Greater Amman Municipality in Jordan as part of a landmark initiative to provide the Kingdom with its first 100 Nissan LEAF and Nissan e-NV200 electric vehicles.
The vehicles, to be supplied by Bustami & Saheb Trading Co., Nissan’s exclusive distributor in the Kingdom, will be operated by Amman’s Al Mumayaz Taxi Company in Jordan and will be the first electric vehicles of their kind to be used in the Middle East.
