Japanese auto maker Nissan has launched its first comprehensive sustainability plan. The scheme, named Nissan Sustainability 2022, pulls together all aspects of its environmental, social and governance initiatives.

The plan is anchored by the company’s ongoing Nissan Green Program, which was launched in 2001 with a long-term vision toward 2050. Nissan Sustainability 2022 will ensure the company is on track to deliver on these goals as it approaches the halfway point.

“Nissan Sustainability 2022 is fully aligned with our midterm objectives of delivering steady growth and leading the automotive industry’s technology evolution,” said Hitoshi Kawaguchi, Nissan senior vice president and chief sustainability officer. “We believe sustainable mobility will help achieve a world with zero emissions and zero fatalities. Our plan, further enhanced by our efforts to be a truly diverse and inclusive company, will make an important contribution to that effort.”

Key targets for Nissan are to decrease CO2 emissions from new vehicles by 40% by 2022, compared with 2000 levels, achieved partly by increasing vehicle electrification; and to achieve annual sales of one million vehicles that are all-electric or have electrified powertrains by the end of 2022. Nissan will also foster deployment of vehicle-to-everything systems globally for improved energy management.
