Sustainability

Commitment

Overview

In everything we do in our sustainability work, our mindset is clear: to always be credible, sincere, long-term and always consider the environmental, social and economic consequences of our actions. And at the core of who we are is our GreenHeart™ – our commitment to being ethically sound and environmentally responsible – inside and out.

Sony Mobile considers sustainable development and production to be one of the most important challenges for the future and one that demands immediate action from all responsible manufacturers. We are committed to the continuous improvement of the sustainability impact of our company. From product design and production to always being a responsible member of the communities in which we operate. Not only do we comply with the applicable regulations and laws, we also work hard to exceed customer and market requirements in all three dimensions of sustainability: environmental, social and economic.

From the start, with the launch of the Sony Ericsson C901™GreenHeart™ in 2009, the intention has always been to broaden GreenHeart™ across the portfolio. For us GreenHeart™ is not a competition to produce the greenest products, it is an initiative to improve our entire portfolio. We want to ensure that every phone and accessory includes GreenHeart™ credentials and step-by-step we are working towards this goal.

When it comes to our environmental impact, Sony Mobile sets clear targets and measures its achievements. Sony Corporation Inc. is operating a Global Environmental Management System, that is ISO 14001 certified. As a fully owned business unit in Sony Corporation, Sony Mobile is in alignment with Sony Global Environmental Management System.

The Sony Mobile Environmental Management System will be certified according to ISO 14001 by end of 2014 in one global certificate.

In addition to Sony´s four perspectives Sony Mobile is committed to driving customer satisfaction for the next generation of customers. We believe that responsible products are needed by our customers today and even more in the future.
