With BRAVIA, sustainability in every scene

With growing demand for ever larger TVs and Professional Displays, there is also the risk of greater resource and energy use. However, Sony’s sustainability commitments are realizing efficiency gains from product development right through to watching TV and viewing displays.

Immersive experience meets environmental consideration

With BRAVIA, you will be able to enjoy the most immersive TV or Display experiences with stunning designs, right alongside innovations to lower environmental impact by helping reduce energy consumption and use of non-renewable resources.

Making it, moving it, and using it more efficiently: Advanced engineering for sustainability

To reduce environmental impact, we are working on multiple aspects across the product life cycle, such as reduction of virgin plastic, improvement of transportation efficiency, and review of power consumption during use.

Using less virgin plastic: Combining high recycling and product quality

Across every design aspect, from material development to aesthetics, we succeeded in increasing our use of recycled material while preserving the high-quality finish. Especially, for OLED TVs and Professional BRAVIA displays, Sony-developed SORPLAS™ recycled plastics are used for the rear cover, the largest TV part by area, reducing overall virgin plastic use by approximately 60%.

Towards closed loop with repeated recyclability

One advantage of SORPLAS™ is that it won’t degrade too much even after being recycled several times. Recycled SORPLAS™ parts have a potential to reduce the volume of waste and contribute toward recycle-oriented society.

Manufacturing for less weight: External Air Injection

Precision moulding techniques make panels strong and beautiful while cutting weight, so packaging also becomes thinner, reducing plastic usage. External air injection presses resin parts with air to eliminate both warping and waste.

Better packaging with less plastic

Conventionally, packaging material is needed above and below BRAVIA Displays and TVs, as well as on the left and right ends. After numerous simulations and decades of global logistics experience, we have optimized packaging design to protect the screen with reduced packaging materials, achieving an approximately 35% reduction of the packaging plastic volume.

Cutting CO2 with smaller and lighter packaging

By reengineering the packaging that protects the product during shipping, we cut the package size by 15% and total weight by 10%. This increases the number of units on one pallet by approximately 1.3 times. As a result, CO2 emissions per unit from product transportation have been reduced by approximately 15%.

Less ink saves resources

Product information printed on the package has been carefully considered for simplicity and length in order to reduce print ink usage by approximately 90% to lower impact without compromising the packaging design and appeal.

Optimal viewing and energy use with automatic brightness control

With ambient light sensing enabled, the screen brightness is optimised for your room’s lighting, and power consumption can be reduced.
