Nissan has been ranked among the top global climate leaders in the Carbon Disclosure Project’s (CDP) climate change program and was included in the non-profit organization’s A-List.
Nissan scored a perfect 100 in the CDP’s Climate Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and was for the second time running the highest-ranked automotive company in Japan.
Its appearance on the Climate A-List was driven largely by sales of the Nissan LEAF, the world’s best-selling all-electric vehicle and one of our favorite cars of all time at Valencia Nissan. Thanks to its zero-emissions status, the LEAF alone has helped establish Nissan as a global leader in climate change.
The perfect score was earned thanks to Nissan’s continuing efforts to reduce CO2 emissions from new vehicles by 90% by the year 2050 and to disclose environmental information with total transparency. Earlier this year, Nissan announced that it had already reduced its carbon footprint by 22.6% compared to 2005, beating its original predictions by two years. Looks like they’re on track!
