These achievements were announced in the CDP Global 500 Climate Change Report 2014, which analyzes companies' environmental strategies and efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions based on the responses from the world's largest 500 listed corporations, and identifies the best performers. The 14th annual CDP index lists companies from the FTSE Global Equity Index Series (Global 500) that demonstrate strategies designed to improve a company's impact on the environment.

In this year's report, Nissan was one of a few elite companies in the CDP's CDLI to receive a perfect 100 score. Nissan also earned an "A" rating in the CPLI for its performance in reducing greenhouse gas emissions resulting from its corporate activities. This showing improved on its impressive results in 2013 when it placed in the top 10 percent of all companies that were listed in the report.

Last year, Nissan reduced CO2 emissions from global corporate activities while increasing vehicle production by 5.1%. The 2.0% cut in CO2 during the year put the company on track to achieve its goal of a 20% reduction by fiscal year 2016, compared to 2005. Nissan set the target in its mid-term environmental action plan, the Nissan Green Program 2016. CO2 emissions through Nissan's corporate activities have already been reduced by 15.4% (t-CO2/vehicle) in fiscal year 2013.

The CDP was established in the UK in 2000 as an independent not-for-profit organization and represents 767 investors representing $92 trillion in assets. Every year, the CDP organization distributes standardized survey questions to private sector corporations and collects responses for assessment and public disclosure as a comprehensive barometer of climate change information.

Nissan's perfect performance in the CDLI and CPLI categories in the CDP's Global 500 report is recognition of its commitment to reduce its environmental impact and communicate proactively to consumers and other stakeholders about its corporate activities and innovative products. Through efforts to minimize its carbon footprint and an unwavering commitment to zero emissions motoring, Nissan will continue to strive to be an automaker that also leads in sustainable mobility.
