The Sony UK Technology Centre is a socially aware business that seeks to minimise its impact on the environment, supports its local community through charity work and sponsorship, and has the welfare of its staff at the heart of its operation
It is the core corporate responsibility of Sony Group to the society to pursue its corporate value enhancement through innovation and sound business practice. In line with this basic view, Sony UK Tec conducts CSR activities with a focus on sustainability in two areas. First, Sony endeavours to ensure the sustainability of its business operations. To this end, Sony has established effective systems for corporate governance and compliance to ensure sound business practices. At the same time, Eco thinking influences our whole product cycle – from the materials we source, recycle and reuse in manufacture, to the development of smaller packaging that takes less space for more energy efficient transportation. Sony also believes in the importance of fostering diverse and lively workplaces and employees with a high level of social awareness. Recognizing fully that its business activities affect both society and the environment in direct and indirect ways, Sony takes steps to minimize that impact to the best of its ability.
Second, Sony UK Tec strives to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society. With the aim of addressing the issues facing global society today and realizing a sustainable global environment-which includes ensuring biodiversity-Sony aims to create value by developing products and services and advancing innovation, as well as to promote initiatives that draw on the capabilities of employees. Here, it is important to maintain a global perspective and to work in partnership with Sony's various stakeholders.
