Sony Corp. (Tokyo) announced it has achieved or exceeded the majority of the targets set out in its "Green Management 2010" mid-term environmental plan, including an over-30% reduction in global CO2 emissions across its business sites compared to fiscal year 2000 levels. Sony’s GM2010 plan, introduced in 2006, aimed to reduce its environmental impact over the five-year period spanning fiscal years 2006 through 2010. Results were confirmed through third-party verification.

Other achievements (compared with fiscal year 2000):
• Waste generation at business sites: 54% reduction (target was 40%)
• Water usage at business sites: 41% reduction (target 20%)
• Volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from business sites: 35% reduction (target 40%)
• Annual electricity consumption of products: achieved 100% of targets in each product category

Sony said semiconductors are primarily where VOCs remain in use. With semiconductor production increasing, Sony said, some VOCs have been difficult to replace, while others emit such low levels of gas, it has proved difficult to implement technically and economically viable alternatives. Sony said it will continue to take steps to reduce VOC emissions, including installing VOC treatment systems.
