A Climate Change Leader

Sony Group Corporation has been included for a second consecutive year in the CDP’s A-List.

CDP is a global nonprofit organization (NPO) founded in the UK in 2000. Backed by investors from around the globe, it conducts surveys on climate change, water security, and forests at private companies, then analyzes and releases the findings of these surveys to the public. This year, CDP surveyed over 18,700 companies globally on behalf of more than 680 institutional investors representing more than 130 trillion U.S. dollars in managed assets.

Based on the recognition that its business success depends upon a healthy global environment, Sony has established “Road to Zero”, a long-term environmental plan to achieve a zero environmental footprint throughout the entire Sony Group by the year 2050, and is promoting activities from the four perspectives of climate change, resources, chemical substances and biodiversity.

The company has also brought forward its net-zero targets throughout the entire value chain, including Scopes 1 to 3, from 2050 to 2040, and is aiming to achieve net-zero in Scopes 1 and 2 by 2030. Sony also recently received approval for its net-zero targets from the “Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

To achieve this goal, Sony has been promoting energy saving initiatives and introducing renewable energy at its business sites. The company has already accomplished 100% renewable electricity use for all business activities in Europe and China. Going forward, it expects to accelerate the use of renewable energy in Japan, North America, and Southeast Asia, with the aim of achieving a 35% renewable electricity ratio for the entire group by 2025, and 100% by 2030.

Sony will also promote further energy saving in our products. At the same time, Sony says it will work to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the entire supply chain by accelerating efforts to reach out to materials and parts suppliers and manufacturing contractors.
