The more a LEAF owner drives their vehicle the more CO2 credits they will earn. These credits help fund more EV charging stations.
Nissan’s Zero Emissions Fund uses Nissan’s Carwings telematics service to track the total mileage travelled by each Nissan LEAF on the road. That data is then used to calculate how much carbon dioxide each LEAD vehicle has prevented from entering the atmosphere. That amount is then converted into CO2 emission credits.
Nissan sells those credits to the Green Investment Promotion Organization, which in turn sells them on the CO2 emissions credit marketplace.
Profits from those sales are used to fund forest conservation activities, and for the installation of rapid charging stations across the country.
