Carbon-Offset Investment Trust
(Updated on August 3, 2012)
In an initiative aimed at mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, Sony Bank Inc. donates to the Japanese government greenhouse gas emissions rights it has purchased on behalf of customers whose holdings in funds that make up its carbon-offset investment trust exceed a specified amount. This system enables customers to participate in an environmental preservation activity while Sony Bank manages their investments. The initiative covers three eco-funds, which have donated greenhouse gas emissions rights totaling 1,000 tons in fiscal year 2008, 2,200 tons in fiscal year 2009, 1,000 tons in fiscal year 2010 and 1,000 tons in fiscal year 2011.
