Senior Executive Vice President, Sony Group Corporation

Shiro Kambe

September 15, 2021

  • Hello everyone. I am Shiro Kambe.

"Responsibility" and "Contribution" to Society and the Global Environment

  • As Kenichiro Yoshida just stated, for Sony to continue to create social value and evolve, it is necessary for the society and global environment in which we live to be healthy.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic which has continued from last year, and the extreme weather events that are occurring around the world, are a stark reminder that the health of the planet is not something we can take for granted.
  • How can Sony, as a global company, go about fulfilling our responsibility and contributing to society and the global environment?
  • I believe this is becoming an increasingly important consideration.

Evolution of Sustainability Management

  • Introduced the fundamental perspectives and related initiatives concerning Environment, Society, and Governance

2nd Briefing (2019)

  • Explained Sony's Value Creation Model
  • Introduced initiatives related to "employees," one of the two pillars necessary for value creation

3rd Briefing (2020)

  • Held as joint ESG/Technology Briefing
  • Provided explanation focusing on "technology," the other pillar necessary for value creation

Integrating sustainability initiatives into business activities,

and focusing on reinforcing value creation through our businesses

  • At Sony, ever since our founding, we have continued to uphold the principle of creating value for the society in which we operate.
  • Following Kenichiro Yoshida's appointment as CEO in 2018, he further strengthened Sony's focus on sustainability as a key element of our management approach, and we have reinforced our efforts in line with this direction.
  • Reflecting the value we place on dialogue with our stakeholders, and the learnings we gain from these discussions, in 2018 we conducted our first ESG Briefing. We have held the event annually since then, making this our 4th ESG Briefing.
  • At the first event, we introduced Sony's fundamental approach and initiatives related to the environment, society and governance.
  • At our second ESG Briefing, we introduced Sony's value creation model, centered around Sony's Purpose to "fill the world with emotion, through the power of creativity and technology" and our corporate direction of "getting closer to people."
  • We also focused on the role of employees, who represent one of the two pillars that form the foundations of Sony's value creation.
  • At the third event held last year, we integrated ESG and Technology , and conducted a joint ESG/Technology Briefing.
  • The focus of this event was technology, the other pillar supporting Sony's value creation, and it outlined the challenges we are undertaking to contribute to sustainability through technology.

  • We are currently engaged in a wide range of ESG-related initiatives, but over the past three years we have focused particularly on integrating activities that were previously driven by the headquarters, into the operations of our businesses.
  • We have thereby reinforced the value we are able to create through each business.
  • Although we have defined "technology" and "employees" as the most important materiality topics for the overall Sony Group, the social value created by each of our diverse businesses and the ways of addressing these topics to create social value, differ from business to business.
  • At Sony's IR Day held in May of this year, the executives responsible for our six main businesses presented the key sustainability issues and value creation initiatives that are priorities in each of their respective businesses, as shown in this slide.
  • Our sustainability initiatives are not being implemented by certain headquarters departments alone, but collectively by all the diverse businesses across the Sony Group, and each of our employees, who identify with these efforts and also see them as part of their responsibility.
  • I am greatly encouraged to see this kind of corporate culture thriving within the Sony Group.
  • Now, I would like to talk about the evolution of Sony's initiatives relating to
