Nissan's Smyrna Manufacturing Plant Achieves ISO 50001 And Superior Energy Performance Certification





SMYRNA, Tenn., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- In May 2012, Nissan's Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant became the first passenger-vehicle manufacturing facility to attain ISO 50001 and Superior Energy Performance (SEP) certifications. Accredited under the American National Standards Institute and National Accreditation Board, these certifications recognize the Smyrna facility as a leader in energy management.

As part of a pilot program established by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, Nissan partnered with Georgia Tech Research Corp. and seven other companies to establish measurable standards of energy management. Employees at Smyrna's manufacturing plant underwent a three-step process of conceiving an approach to reducing energy, adopting conservation tactics, and sustaining efficient practices in the plant.

"Nissan is proud to have certified our Smyrna plant to the new international standard for energy management and to superior energy performance," said Bill Krueger, Vice Chairman, Nissan Americas. "We are committed to increase energy efficiency as we reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing the highest quality vehicles sold in North America. These efforts align with our global strategies of zero-emission leadership and corporate social responsibility to employees, stakeholders and customers."

Within three years of establishing a baseline, the Smyrna manufacturing facility improved energy performance by 7 percent. The plant now serves as a model for the ISO 50001 and SEP standards.

In addition to the new ISO 50001 and SEP certifications, the Smyrna manufacturing facility has been an ENERGY STAR® certified efficient plant since 2006.  Nissan North America is also a recipient of the U.S. EPA ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence award.
