Modal Shift in Japan
(Updated on August 24, 2012)
Also in Japan, Sony continues to promote modal shift from truck to rail or ferry/boat.
In fiscal year 2011, Sony promoted modal shift for approximately 10,000 tons transportation weights of finished goods in Japan, which resulted in reduction of CO2 emissions by approximately 1,780 tons compared with transportation by truck.
In particular, as a result of our activities of modal shift from truck to rail which can travel with less CO2 emissions, Sony acquired the certification of "Eco Rail Mark"* in September 2011 from the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
