TOKYO -- Nissan Motor has begun reusing aluminum scraps in its popular Rogue SUV to reduce the environmental impact of producing the metal as governments and investors have become increasingly focused on emissions from automakers besides those that come out of the exhaust pipe.

Aluminum has become an increasingly prominent metal in auto bodies because of its light weight. However, producing the metal emits massive amounts of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that scientists say contributes to climate change.
