On April 27, TIME announced the first-ever "TIME100 Most Influential Companies," a new list highlighting 100 businesses making an extraordinary impact around the world. We at Sony are very proud to have been included.

According to TIME, nominations were solicited across every sector - including health care, entertainment, transportation, technology and more - from its global network of editors and correspondents, as well as from industry experts. Each company was then evaluated on key factors, including relevance, impact, innovation, leadership, ambition and success.

Sony is featured in the "Leaders" category alongside companies including Apple and Nike, in recognition of the successful launch of PlayStation®5 amidst the COVID-19 crisis, and the record-breaking animated feature "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba," which rewrote the all-time box office record in Japan.

Sony Honored as One of the "World's Most Ethical Companies" for 5th Consecutive Year

Sony has been named one of the "World's Most Ethical Companies" for the fifth consecutive year by the Ethisphere Institute, the US-based global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices. "Integrity & Sincerity" are among Sony's Values. Sony promotes the ethics & compliance program at a group-wide level, and considers its continued selection as one of the "World's Most Ethical Companies" as external recognition of its ethical corporate culture and relevant initiatives.

Unleash the boundless "space perspectives"
and deliver a new Kando experience

From the perspective of "Co-Creation," the "SESSIONS" series features dialogues that introduce the activities of Sony's diverse employees to create Kando, based on Sony's Purpose. In this, the fifth SESSIONS installment, we address the STAR SPHERE project. The purpose of this project is to enable people to feel closer to the universe and discover a new perspective on space. Through the experience of operating a nano-satellite jointly developed by Sony and the University of Tokyo, with support from JAXA, users can take their own photos and videos of space and earth. We introduce the project concept, "space perspectives" and the current Co-Creation activity.
