Nissan is serious about saving energy and working to protect our environment. For the fifth year in a row now, Nissan has been recognized as an Energy Star Partner of the Year by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
“Nissan is honored to once again be recognized as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the year,” said Rebecca Vest, vice president, Corporate Development and Social Responsibility, in a statement. “We continue to make improvements to our operations that reduce our environmental footprint as we manufacture the highest quality vehicles sold in North America.”
Over the years, Nissan has made numerous changes at its facilities to reduce energy use and prevent waste. These efforts include switching to more efficient LED lighting, improving industrial motor efficiency, repairing compressed air leaks, and using a more environmentally friendly paint process that uses 30% less energy.
In addition to the Energy Start Partner award, Nissan’s plant in Canton, Mississippi was recently awarded an Energy Star Certification for the 10th consecutive year. With these accomplishments, Nissan ranks in the top 25% in the automotive industry for superior energy conservation.
Here at Vann York’s High Point Nissan, we are proud to be a part of a company that works hard to preserve our environment for generations to come.
