Kobe Steel, Ltd.

Kobe Steel, Ltd. announces that it has decided to use green aluminum materials for its aluminum extrusion and suspension products delivered to Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. for Nissan’s mass-produced vehicles for the Japanese and North American markets, starting in fiscal 2024. The Company plans to consider applying it to mass-produced vehicles for the European market as well.

Green aluminum materials will be used in aluminum bumper reinforcements, door guard bars, and suspension parts*1, in addition to aluminum sheet products that have already been delivered to Nissan*2. Approximately 10% of the weight of Nissan's vehicles is made up of aluminum parts, which contribute significantly to reduction of CO2 emissions during the life cycle of vehicles.

The Kobe Steel Group (also known as the Kobelco Group) will proceed with the initiatives aimed at reducing CO2 emissions by integrating its unique and diverse businesses, technologies, and human resources, with a view to realizing a carbon neutral society in the future.
