Sony is known for creating products and entertainment that enrich people's lives. Through Sony Corporation of America and its operating companies, we are equally dedicated to improving people's lives. Our commitment extends to helping our local communities, investing in the education of children, supporting the arts and culture, helping disadvantaged youth, protecting and improving the environment, providing necessary support when large-scale disasters strike, and encouraging employee volunteerism.
Our strategic philanthropic and corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts are aligned to reflect the diverse interests of our key businesses and focus on several distinct areas: education; arts and culture; civic and community outreach; sustainability and the environment; and disaster relief, with an emphasis on volunteerism in each of those areas.
The notion of corporate citizenship and the spirit of philanthropy are deeply embedded in the culture of Sony in America. We're proud of the programs and partnerships that have touched countless lives throughout the U.S. and of the thousands of Sony employees who have given generously of themselves in support of our goals.
Our CSR initiatives reflect Sony’s commitment to ethical and responsible business practices. Sony established the principles in its “Sony Group Code of Conduct” in alignment with its core values of fairness, integrity, honesty, respect, and responsibility, and we endeavor to uphold these principles as we strive to create innovation across our diverse industries. In recognition of our leading ethics and corporate social responsibility activities, Sony Corporation was honored by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the “2019 World’s Most Ethical Companies” for achieving outstanding results in the areas of ethical culture, corporate citizenship and responsibility, governance and reputation - an honor bestowed upon only 128 companies around the world.
