Environmental Info

Sony is engaged in a constant review of its manufacturing, operational and business practices to ensure that its products are developed in an environmentally responsible way. This approach can broadly be divided into three areas:

Product

-- All seven models consume only 0.3W in Standby mode.

-- Over 85% power efficiency of amplifier block is achieved with the full digital amplifier, S-Master.

Process

-- Halogenated materials can pose a risk to the environment if disposed of improperly. To minimize this risk, halogen-free flame retardants are used in certain printed wiring boards.

-- Corrugated cardboard is not used for the packaging cushions. Packaging cushions are made from paper.

Planet

Sony is determined to lead the way as a responsible manufacturer, and as a result we are focussing on three key areas of investment:

-- Reducing CO2 gas emissions

-- Increasing the percentage of renewable energy used in manufacturing facilities

-- Minimising the resources used by our factories in manufacturing

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.
