Sony’s Plan for Achieving a Zero Environmental Footprint
Sony’s environmental plan, “Road to Zero,” established in 2010, is aimed at achieving a zero environmental footprint, with intermediate targets defined by our Green Management 2025 plan. At every stage of the product’s lifecycle, from development to packaging, measures have been implemented to reduce its environmental impact.

Environment-friendly packaging
In order to reduce environmental impact, Sony has employed their durable and recyclable “Original Blend Material,” composed of bamboo, sugar cane, and recycled paper, in the outer packaging of the ZV-E1, completely eliminating plastic. Sony is also actively working towards replacing packaging materials with non-plastic alternatives that provide adequate protection against shock and impact, as well as utilizing plant-based non-woven fabrics for product bags.
