The table below outlines the targets for logistics set forth in Green Management 2015. To facilitate the achievement of these targets, Sony is decreasing shipping weight by reducing the weight of finished products. At the same time, Sony is striving to reduce CO2 emissions and the amount of packaging materials used in logistics by optimizing transportation efficiency (i.e., making product packaging more compact, and improving load efficiency and package design), as well as by switching to modes of transportation and utilizing other shipping techniques that lessen our environmental footprint, including modal shift and joint shipping.
Mid-Term Targets for Logistics
|Reduce CO2 emissions from logistics by 14% from the fiscal year 2008 level
||Reduce waste from packaging for incoming parts by 16% from the fiscal year 2008 level
