Disclosure of Financial and Non-Financial Information

Editorial Policy for Sustainability Report 2020

Sony first issued its environmental report in 1994, then enhanced the information related to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and changed the name of the report to "CSR report" in 2003. In order to keep the information disclosed up to date as Sony's scope of business and circumstances change, Sony has been disclosing its CSR activities mainly on the web since 2014. In 2018, the report was renamed the "Sustainability Report." 
In 2020, Sony compiled and issued this report mainly in PDF format to improve readability. For more information on Sony's sustainability and CSR activities, please refer to this report. In addition, the Sustainability section on the Sony Group Portal Website includes sections on the Environment, Social Contribution, Accessibility and Diversity & Inclusion.

  • Scope: Sony Corporation, consolidated subsidiaries and other companies within the scope of consolidation
  • Period Covered: Fiscal 2019 (April 1, 2019 - March 31, 2020)

Please note, however, that reporting on material activities, such as major organizational changes, includes information up through July 31, 2020. 
In the main text of the report, "Sony" refers to the entire Sony Group, not just Sony Corporation. The Sony Group is Sony Corporation —  the parent company that operates in Japan — and all consolidated subsidiaries in which Sony Corporation holds a capital stake of more than 50%.
