Message from CEO

Accelerate our environmental initiatives as we advance to the next stage

Environmental initiatives are one of Sony's most important topics in this age in which a company's consideration of the environment is one of the selection standards for customers when purchasing products.

Sony has continued to promote environmental activities based on our "Road to Zero" environmental plan, which aims for a zero environmental footprint. In order to accelerate our environmental activities, we have now established our "Green Management 2020" environmental targets (achievement year: FY2020). As we move toward these targets, the entire Group, including the field of entertainment in addition to electronics, will make the best use of its individual strengths in performing these activities.

The Sony Group has now entered the next stage of its environmental activities. Sony is committed not only to offering products, services, and content that deliver exciting user experiences by inspiring and fulfilling the curiosity of our customers around the world, but also, through our "Road to Zero" environmental plan, to working toward our goal of a zero environmental footprint throughout our business activities.
