Nissan joins Race to Zero

Nissan has announced that it has joined the UN sponsored Race to Zero campaign to help accelerate the company’s full electrification and carbon neutrality goals. It is the first Japanese carmaker to join the campaign.

The maker of the LEAF EV has also signed the campaign’s Business Ambition for 1.5C commitment, aligning Nissan with the goal to keep global temperature rise to 1.5C above pre-industrial levels. Nissan has joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), a requirement for participation in the campaign.

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.

COP26 President Designate Alok Sharma said: “It is fantastic to see Nissan join the Race to Zero. They are the first Japanese vehicle manufacturer to sign up and through their manufacturing of batteries in North East England for electric cars, are demonstrating real leadership in the transition to net-zero across the UK.”
