Nissan earns 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award


Nissan has picked up another illustrious honor and has been recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with the 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award. This is the highest distinction given to organizations who are dedicated to protecting the environment. How are they doing this? By making their operations more energy efficient.

What makes this honor even better is that this is the seventh year in a row that the year EPA has recognized Nissan for its continued commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as the goal to improve energy management at its U.S. facilities.

"Awards like the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year let us know we are moving in the right direction with our sustainable manufacturing practices," said Rebecca Vest, vice president, Corporate Development and Social Responsibility. "Our approach is a comprehensive one, focused on maximizing efficiency and reducing energy waste in our manufacturing facilities, all while continuing to deliver the products our customers expect."

Over the past few years, Nissan has made a great number of efforts to reduce energy usage including switching to more efficient technologies such as LED lighting, engaging all employees in energy management, and including energy efficiency in design, like an environmentally friendly paint process which has cut energy usage by more than 30%.

The 2018 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Awards are bestowed upon companies, as well as other organizations who strive to demonstrate not only a continued leadership in energy efficiency, but also a commitment to the ENERGY STAR program. Winners range anywhere from Fortune 500 organizations to small, family-owned businesses. The winners of the 2018 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Awards all represent energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial and public sectors. For over 25 years, the EPA's ENERGY STAR program has been America's resource for saving energy and protecting the environment.
