Background

In the Americas, Nissan's operations include automotive styling, consumer and corporate financing, sales, marketing, distribution, and manufacturing. Nissan North America's environmental strategy encompasses eco-innovative technologies and energy management. In Smyrna, Tennessee, for example, Nissan recently opened a new paint plant that will improve energy efficiency by 30% compared to the plant it is replacing.

As a Better Buildings Better Plants Challenge Partner, Nissan North America has committed to reducing energy use in its three U.S. plants 25% by 2020, affecting 12 million square feet of plant space. This effort is part of Nissan's global environmental action plan, the Nissan Green Program 2016, which includes a wider application of fuel-efficient vehicles and corporate carbon footprint minimization.
