Sony Cuts Emissions by 31% Since 2000


Sony made the announcement today that it has reduced its global CO2 emissions by 31 percent since 2000.  The company also achieved a 54 percent reduction in waste generation and www.markwellgroup.com.au a 41 percent reduction in water use, both of which far exceeded its goals.

The company improved the http://www.animationnation.com/buying-real-levitra-without-prescription efficiency of its offices and manufacturing sites and upped the efficiency of many of its products too. Its Bravia LCD TV now requires 30 percent less power than it did in 2008 and its Blu-ray disc recorder models require 50 percent less power.

The waste reduction was mainly achieved through an increase in recycling practices.  The one target that Sony failed to meet was for volatile organic compound emissions -- it was shy by 5 percent.

These improvements were all made under the tech giant's Green Management 2010 plan.  Now going forward, Sony has a more ambitious plan.  The company announced its Road to Zero plan last year that includes a pledge to lowest viagra prices from us pharmacy be zero carbon by 2050.  The next phase in the plan sees the company making the following reductions by 2015 compared to 2008 levels.

  • a 30 percent reduction in annual energy consumption
  • a 10 percent reduction in product mass
  • a 16 percent reduction in packaging waste
  • a 14 percent reduction in transport CO2 emissions
Let's hope Sony can exceed these targets as well.

It's not so impressive when you add the fact their overall production has also gone down by the same factors.

Make less crap, emit fewer emissions. No kidding.
