Nissan Ranked Among Top Global Climate Leaders

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!
