Aims to achieve carbon neutrality, including scope 3, by 2040
Tokyo, Japan - Sony Group Corporation (“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.
Sony is making various efforts regarding the environment from the two perspectives of "Responsibility" and "Contribution." Sony has pursued environmental initiatives in accordance with its environmental principles since the early 1990s, and in 2010, the company announced the "Road to Zero," a long-term global environmental plan that aims to realize a sustainable society by achieving a zero environmental footprint throughout the life cycle of Sony’s products and business activities by the year 2050. The "Road to Zero" plan symbolizes Sony's responsibility for the global environment, and accordingly Sony has set goals for each of the four perspectives of climate change, resources, chemical substances, and biodiversity in drawing a comprehensive roadmap to achieve the goals of the plan. As climate change risks become more apparent and serious worldwide, and the transition to a decarbonized society has become an urgent issue, Sony made the decision to accelerate its environmental impact reduction activities in the climate change area and to bring forward the target year of achieving a zero environmental footprint in this area by ten years.
