Sony Speeds-up Green Goals
Sony is accelerating its goal of achieving carbon neutrality throughout the entire value chain, including scopes 1 to 3, by ten years from 2050 to 2040, and its target for achieving 100% renewable energy in its own operations also by ten years, from 2040 to 2030.
The company reports that it will accelerate its target year for carbon neutrality, i.e. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, from 2050 to 2040.
Additionally, it will also target other emissions originating from stages such as products, supply chains, and logistics (scope 3), aiming for net zero emissions achieved in all scopes.
Its renewable electricity rate, which is, reportedly, one of the priority items of Sony’s “Green Management 2025 (GM2025)” medium-term environmental targets enacted to achieve “Road to Zero”, is being raised from the existing target of 15% to the new target of 35%. At the same time, Sony’s renewable energy procurement policy has been revised to include additional items for environmental consideration when installing and operating power generation equipment.
The company says that it is also actively working to contribute to the global environment through its own technologies and businesses, as well as through co-creation with partners.
