In their annual study, ASG found that Nissan embodied environmental integrity throughout the company's production, distribution and products.

The 2017 Nissan Rogue and 2017 Nissan Pathfinder both received two awards in their classes, for "Best All-Around Performance" and "Best Economic Performance." The "Best All-Around Performance" designation recognizes vehicles that demonstrate the top environmental, social and economic attributes, while "Best Economic Performance" is given to vehicles that feature the lowest cost-of-ownership scores.

The Nisan LEAF (Midsize Car) and Nissan Versa sedan (Compact Car) earned "Best 5 All-Around Performance" honors in their respective classes.
