Today, it’s hard to imagine that there was a time when it was legal for factories to dump and spew toxins into the environment with no questions asked and no repercussions.

In fact, it wasn’t until 1970 that Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day as a means to bring environmental issues to the public. With its swift success, reflected by the more than 20 million Americans who participated in demonstrations, Congress authorized the establishment of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) later that same year.

Now we have the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and of course, the five R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Replenish and Restore.

We’re proud to work for an automaker that’s dedicated to making the world a better place. From producing vehicles like the Nissan LEAF to developing initiatives to cut carbon dioxide emissions and run efficient factories, Nissan continues to prove its commitment to ensuring a bright future for our planet.
