Under the Green Star Program, Sony has identified concrete measures that are necessary for advancing biodiversity conservation initiatives at business sites and in surrounding communities, and manage land use, green spaces, and revegetation in a way that accounts for biodiversity. The measures are organized so that business sites can self-assess their progress, as shown in the table below. This framework enables business sites to take active steps toward enriching biodiversity in ways that are tailored to their environment, and to identify their progress and issues they need to address.
