“This unique initiative supports the manufacture of next-generation vehicles using innovative technologies and contributes to the realisation of carbon neutrality. Nissan also announced a roadmap to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 at its production plants around the world.”
Hideyuki Sakamoto, Nissan’s executive vice president for manufacturing and supply chain management, said, “The automotive industry is in a period of great change, and solving the global challenge of climate change is urgent. We see this as an opportunity to build the strength of monozukuri (manufacturing), a part of our DNA, to develop and apply innovative technologies to overcome the challenges we face.”
Nissan introduced this at its Tochigi Plant. It will allow it to use robots that have inherited the skills of takumi to manufacture next-generation vehicles of the highest quality, to create an improved environment in which a wide range of people can work comfortably, and to realise a zero-emission production system, thereby accelerating efforts to achieve a decarbonised society.
