The partnership agreement was signed today between the Renault-Nissan Alliance and the General Secretary in charge of the preparation and organization of the 21st annual Conference of Parties (better known as COP21). The fully electric car fleet will shuttle delegates during the event from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11.

More than 20,000 U.N. participants from 195 countries are expected to attend the annual climate summit. It will be the first time the U.N. will use a zero-emission fleet for its entire passenger car shuttle at a COP event.

The goals of the Paris summit are to have a new global climate-change agreement in place by the end of 2015 and to have the Climate Green Fund, established to help developing countries adapt to climate change and reduce emissions, start allocating funds.

"We are delighted to announce that the Renault-Nissan Alliance is an official partner of COP21 in Paris. The Alliance's fleet of 100% electric vehicles will contribute to our goal of achieving a carbon neutral event. The technology of electric vehicles helps reduce greenhouse gases in the transportation sector efficiently," said Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, President of COP21.

"Electric vehicle technology is an efficient solution for a practical and affordable mode of transportation. This solution has a positive impact on the climate and air quality in our cities," said Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of the Renault-Nissan Alliance. "It's time to accelerate the shift to zero-emission mobility by working together with all parties concerned."

The COP21 car fleet will feature the Renault ZOE subcompact car, the Renault Kangoo Z.E. van, the Renault Fluence Z.E. sedan, the Nissan LEAF compact car and the 7-seater Nissan e-NV200 van.
*No CO2 emissions and no regulated atmospheric pollutants while driving according to homologation cycle (NEDC).
