Sony's next step will be to fulfill more forward-thinking targets identified in the company's 'Road to Zero ' plan, announced in 2010, in which Sony pledged to be zero carbon by 2050. As part of this goal, the corporation will aim for a 30 per cent reduction in annual energy consumption, a 10 per cent reduction in product mass, a 16 per cent reduction in packaging waste and a 14 per cent reduction in transport CO2 emissions by 2015 (all compared to 2008 levels). The company has also set itself a five per cent reduction in utilisation ratio of virgin oil-based plastics in products (compared to 2008) within the next five years. Additional goals for 2015 include reducing absolute waste generation by 50 per cent (compared to 2000) and reducing absolute water consumption by 30 per cent (compared to 2000).
