Nissan’s 2014 Sustainability Report Released

Nissan released its 2014 sustainability report highlighting how the company’s vision is enriching people’s lives.

The company explained its report details efforts to create economic value and develop a sustainable society through business activities.

Nissan said it is offering increased detail about its activities in the Sustainability Report 2014 for greater transparency. For the first time the report includes a Materiality Matrix. Widely used by major corporations and ratings agencies, the matrix sets out how Nissan is aligning its business interests and CSR to the greater good of society.

Nissan added it pursues sustainability in eight key areas: Environment, Safety, Philanthropy, Quality, Value Chain, Employees, Economic Contribution, Corporate Governance and Internal Control. The report includes the Nissan CSR Scorecard, which analyses the progress made on annual objectives and describes the specific activities in each area.

“At Nissan, our commitment to sustainability is the cornerstone of our business,” said Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn. “It is also a driver of innovation. As we develop the cars of the future, we’re working to create products that not only strengthen our business but also enhance our society, increase mobility and help to solve today’s most significant safety and environmental challenges.”
