New ecological targets: Nissan pushes electrification


Nissan has released a comprehensive sustainability plan with core goals of the organization up until the year 2022. It aims to reduce CO2 emissions for new vehicles, which will be achieved through increased vehicle electrification.

For the first time, Nissan has presented a comprehensive sustainability plan, which includes ecological, social and economical targets, and names goals to be reached in the next four years.

The strategy is conform to the general medium term goals set by the company, which were included in the Roadmap Nissan M.O.V.E. to 2022, said the car manufacturer in a press statement. The core goal of the road map is to sell one million EVs per year by the end of 2022.

From an e-mobility perspective, a closer look at the ecological targets is important: Nissan plans to reduce CO2 emissions from their new vehicles by 40% compared to the year 2000. Furthermore, the manufacturer promised to drive the V2X (Vehicle to Everything) systems forward globally, helping set new energy consumption standards this way. Nissan also plans to reduce new materials and source more from recycled and re-used materials. This particularly counts towards batteries from EVs.

Nissan is also looking to improve in the field of bidirectional charging and battery recycling, and already has taken steps ahead of other manufacturers in this regard. In March, they started a joint venture with Sumitomo in Namie, Japan, to build the first recycling and re-use facility for EV batteries.
