Nissan North America Wins Energy Star Award
You're aware that Nissan started the EV technology revolution with the Nissan LEAF, but are you aware all of the other ways they're looking to shrink their carbon footprint? Well, it's a long list but to put it simply, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honored Nissan North America with one of their coveted ENERGY STAR Sustained Excellence Awards.
2012 marks the 20th year the ENERGY STAR Awards have been in existence, and EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson says, "Nissan and all our ENERGY STAR award winners are helping Americans find cost-effective ways to save energy in everything we do, which is good for our climate, our health, and our future."1
Companies honored by Sustained Excellence Awards have shown their commitment to building a more sustainable future with the use of advanced technology each year. By setting strict environmental goals, decreasing their greenhouse gas discharges, and consistently reinventing their manufacturing practices Nissan continues to set the green example for other automakers.
Nissan, of course, is grateful by the gratitude for all of their hard work. Bill Krueger, Vice Chairman, Nissan Americas, says, "Nissan is committed to partnering with ENERGY STAR in our efforts to increase energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing with the highest quality vehicles sold in North America."2 He goes on to say that this award highlights Nissan's global goals of leading in zero-emission technology and corporate responsibility.
With that in mind, Royal Nissan invites you down to our showroom in Baton Rouge to learn more about all of the ways Nissan is turning up the efficiency of their lineup.
