CO2 Emissions from Transport of Finished Products in Fiscal Year 2012
(Updated on August 23, 2013)
In fiscal year 2012, CO2 emissions from logistics totaled approximately 270,000 tons, 37% lower than in fiscal year 2008 and approximately 20% lower than in fiscal year 2011. Sony keeps working towards further reduction of CO2 emissions by measures such as downsizing and weight reduction of products and packages and also modal shift.
Since fiscal year 2008, the base year of our mid-term environmental targets, Sony has been taking steps to expand the calculation scope of CO2 emissions from logistics, and Sony's current scope covers more than 40 countries and territories such as Japan, the United States, Europe and Asia. As for those countries/territories which came into scope after fiscal year 2008, we have been promoting CO2 emissions reduction with targets set in line with the overall mid-term target, based on the year when the first data was captured. Owing to the addition of several countries and territories to the calculation scope, CO2 emissions from logistics in fiscal year 2012 amounted to approximately 385,000 tons.
