CAR­ING FOR THE EN­VI­RON­MENT

Qatar Today - - BUSINESS -

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.
