Carlos Ghosn, chief executive officer of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, has received the coveted 2011 FISITA medal for his achievements in "building a cross-cultural partnership and for his work in favor of sustainable mobility for all through a complete range of 100-percent electric vehicles." In a statement, Ghosn said:
One of the greatest honors one can aspire to is to be singled out as a leader in innovation and sustainability. The Renault-Nissan Alliance shares these two values and promotes them with its 350,000 employees worldwide, which is why I also accept this honor on their behalf.
Nice move, that.

The medal was presented to Ghosn recently at the Universidad Politecnica in Valencia, Spain at the end of the FISITA congress. The International Federation of Automotive Engineering Companies (aka FISITA), was founded in Paris in 1948. The main task of FISITA's 163,000 members is to contribute to the creation of safe, affordable and sustainable automotive transport. And also to give out awards, apparently.
