In fiscal 2016, emissions of CO2 from energy use at Sony sites* accounted for approximately 1.25 million out of the approximately 1.38 million tons of total emissions at Sony, down by about 222,000 tons from fiscal 2015. CO2 emissions resulting from the use of energy at sites in Japan amounted to approximately 980,000 tons, a decrease of approximately 77,000 tons from fiscal 2015. CO2 emissions resulting from energy use at Sony sites include emissions from fuel used by Sony-owned business vehicles. In fiscal 2016, CO2 emissions resulting from fuel used in vehicles amounted to approximately 22,000 tons.
Going forward, Sony will take efforts to restrict greenhouse gas emissions through infrastructure-related measures, including the installation of high-efficiency equipment and the promotion of energy recycling, and to enhance nonstructural measures, notably the introduction of training programs designed to foster energy-saving leaders.
