Sony Mobile Communications inc. (SOMC) is promoting efforts to manage chemical substances in its Xperia™ Smartphones and tablets. Starting in 2002 and known as one of the first companies in the industry to phase-out brominated flame retardants (BFRs) in mobile phone (circuit boards, cables and casings).
Since then SOMC has continued the journey and phased out BFRs (all applications), chlorinated flame retardants (CFRs), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), Phthalates, Beryllium, and Antimony (except ceramics and solder).
Going forward, SOMC will continue phasing out all brominated and chlorinated compounds as well as Antimony.
