Energy efficient products

Most Sony products consume electrical power during normal use, which may result in CO2 emissions. Sony has set a 30% reduction target in annual energy consumption across product categories by fiscal year 2015 compared to fiscal year 2008. Saving energy helps lower your energy bills, and helps to protect the environment and prevent climate change. In fiscal year 2013, annual energy consumption across product categories was 31% lower than that of 2008 on average, achieving the target ahead of time. Sony continues to promote incorporation of energy-saving technologies and features in a wide range of product categories. Sony is also a proud partner and active participant in the EPA Energy Star Television program. ENERGY STAR products are certified to meet and exceed current energy specifications.
