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
