This award is the “highest honor given to organizations dedicated to protecting the environment by making their operations more energy efficient.” This means that Nissan is producing fuel-efficient vehicles, and its facilities are implementing practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve their overall energy management.
These environmentally minded innovations are working towards Nissan’s goal of sustainable manufacturing practices. Rebecca Vest, the vice president of Corporate Development and Social Responsibility, said, “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.”
Nissan was honored by the 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year award, as it displays the automaker’s commitment to bettering communities and its leadership in sustainable manufacturing. Their practices include using energy-efficient LED lighting, training employees in energy management, and incorporating energy-efficiency as a central part of their design, engineering, and manufacturing process.
At Bates Nissan, we’re proud to offer exceptional Nissan vehicles to drivers that represent the very best in energy-efficient, sustainable manufacturing. For more information about our sustainable efforts, or some of our fuel-efficient vehicles, visit our showroom or give us a call.
