Renault-Nissan Alliance joins WBCSD with focus on emissions, safety

By ,

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) has a new member: the Renault-Nissan Alliance.

This partnership confirms the French-Japanese duo’s aim to contribute towards a zero-emissions, zero-fatalities future. 

The WBCSD is an organization of more than 200 leading businesses and partners from all sectors and all major economies, representing a combined revenue of over $8.5 trillion and 19 million employees around the world. With 340,000 zero-emissions vehicles sold since 2010, the Renault-Nissan Alliance immediately becomes a major asset.

“As we move toward the low-carbon economy, it’s imperative that we have strong and forward-thinking leaders in the automobile sector,” said Peter Bakker, WBCSD’s President and CEO. “We look forward to working with Renault-Nissan Alliance to deliver the business solutions that will address serious global challenges, and hope they will create new global benchmarks for more sustainable car companies.”
