    Nissan Motor
    Sachi Suzuki
    While its environmental performance and progress in developing sustainable vehicle technologies deserved commendation, Nissan’s governance structure had raised some significant concerns. For instance, its joint chair and chief executive Carlos Ghosn has also held the combined chair and chief executive position at Renault, which holds 44% of Nissan. The board also lacked independence. Of its nine directors, eight were Nissan company executives and only one, a former Renault senior executive, was designated as an outside director. The concentration of power at the top of the company underlined the need for a more independent board, capable of holding management accountable.
