Sony Corporation, the Japanese electronics giant, has joined RE100 with an aim of reaching 100% use of renewable energy at all its premises by 2040. Helen Clarkson, CEO, The Climate Group, said: “We are excited to welcome Sony aboard RE100. From PlayStation and image sensors to consumer electronics, music, and film, this is the largest entertainment and technology business in the world stepping up and switching its entire operations to 100% renewable electricity. Sony is at the forefront of cutting-edge innovation and this commitment shows the global marketplace that renewable energy is the future.” Sony already has all of its European operations supplied fully by renewables and now it will expand its use of clean energy in North America and China, as well as planning to use solar power at all of its factories in Thailand, Japan and elsewhere.
