Sony's efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by using renewable energy include using electrical power produced from renewable energy sources, purchasing electrical power produced from renewable energy sources, and purchasing green energy certificates and other carbon offset credits. The greenhouse gas emissions reduction achieved by using renewable energy is calculated by multiplying the renewable energy used by the CO2 conversion rate.
