Sony sets 2025 energy targets

Sony Corporation released Sept. 10 their “Green Management 2025” plan, which includes medium-term targets to serve as milestones along their path toward a zero environmental footprint by 2050.

These intermediary targets will be applicable from FY 2021 through FY 2025. More specifically, Sony is targeting an increase to 15% of their electricity coming from renewable sources and to decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 5% compared to FY 2020 through energy management and expanding renewable energy.

Overall, the tech company is targeting 100% renewable electricity by 2040; European business sites have already achieved this milestone, while those in China are expected to reach 100% in FY 2020 and those in North America should achieve it by 2030. The company plans to reduce annual energy consumption by 5% by 2025.

The four major focus areas of Sony’s “Green Management 2025” are:

  1. Reduce the amount of plastic and energy used by products
  2. Measures against climate change, such as expanding the use of renewable energy at manufacturing sites
  3. Enhance engagement with raw material and component suppliers and contractors along the supply chain
  4. Strengthen efforts, particularly in the entertainment business, to raise awareness of sustainability issues
