The Renault-Nissan Alliance has announced that it has become the newest member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), joining over 200 international companies promoting global sustainability. The Alliance said this membership highlights its commitment to sustainability as a cornerstone of business, and also its aim to contribute towards a zero-emission, zero-fatalities future.
Renault-Nissan noted that while it develops cars of the future, it is also focused on creating products that enhance society, increase mobility and help solve the most significant safety and environmental challenges. The Alliance is said to be the global leader in electric vehicles, and has sold over 340,000 zero-emissions vehicles since 2010. Its engineers are also working on developing Autonomous Drive, connectivity and other next-generation technologies towards the Alliance goal of zero-emissions and zero-fatalities.
Peter Bakker, President and CEO, WBCSD, said it is imperative to have strong and forward-thinking leaders in the automobile sector, as there is a move towards low carbon economy. WBCSD looks forward to working with Renault-Nissan Alliance to deliver business solutions that will address serious global challenges, and will hopefully create new global benchmarks for more sustainable car companies, he added.
