Nissan Japan Plants Get ISO Environmental Certification
And, apparently, somebody agrees. Nissan announced today that its facilities in Japan (Global Headquarters, Honmoku Wharf, Customer Service Centers, Global Information System Center, Sagamihara Parts Center, Nissan Education Center and Hokkaido Rikubetsu Proving Ground) had received the ISO14001 certification for the environmental management systems implemented there.
The achievement was possible thanks to the start, in 2006, of the Nissan Green Program 2010, a mid-term action plan set in motion to transform the management and production processes into green operations.
With this new certification, Nissan has expanded the number of green-recognized facilities to cover pretty much the entire Japanese production process. The recognition now covers the work conducted by roughly 30,000 people working for Nissan.
The other plants and facilities that have received similar acknowledgment include the Nissan Zama Operation Center, Nissan Technical Center, Nissan Advanced Technology Center, Nissan Research Center, Nissan Forklift Corporation and Automotive Energy Supply Corporation
“Nissan will continue activities to strengthen its environmental management, as well as providing models to the market with high environmental performance, "Zero Emission" with its focus on 100 percent electric vehicles and "PURE DRIVE" that are designed to achieve class-leading fuel economy with next-generation eco-technologies,” promised the Japanese car maker.
