Nissan Commits To Carbon Neutral Future By Joining Race To Zero

Nissan has announced that it has joined the Race to Zero campaign supported by the United Nations, accelerating the company’s full electrification and carbon neutrality goals. Nissan is the first Japanese automaker to join the campaign.

Nissan also signed the campaign’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C commitment, aligning Nissan with the goal to keep global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. It is one of 700 companies worldwide working towards science-based emissions reduction targets. The carmaker also joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a requirement for participation in the campaign. Joining the initiative means that Nissan’s carbon reduction targets have been validated by the SBTi, ensuring that they are aligned to the latest climate science.

Earlier this year Nissan pledged to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050. Nissan is looking to accelerate these efforts through initiatives like Nissan EV36Zero – the new manufacturing blueprint combining electric vehicle production, battery manufacturing, and renewable energy generation.

Central to Nissan’s carbon neutrality plans is its rollout of electrified vehicles and technologies. This began in 2010 and continues today with the expansion of Nissan’s unique e-Power technology and new fully electric vehicles such as the Nissan LEAF and Ariya. Nissan is aiming for 100 percent of its all-new vehicle offerings to be electrified in the key markets of Japan, China, the United States, and Europe by the early 2030s.

Earlier this year Nissan announced its long-term commitment to the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship racing through to the end of season twelve 2025-2026, bringing the excitement and fun of zero-emission electric vehicles to a global audience.

Further to the development of new vehicles and technologies, Nissan will continue its work with partners globally in innovating and developing the electric ecosystem around EVs, covering renewable energy generation, energy storage, 2nd life uses for EV batteries and continued development of the ‘4R’ business model - Reuse, Refabricate, Resell, Recycle - for the benefit of communities.
