Comments Off on Sony Cuts Emissions by 31% Since 2000

Sony made the announcement today that it has reduced its global CO2 emissions by 31 percent since 2000.  The company also achieved a 54 percent reduction in waste generation and a 41 percent reduction in water use, both of which far exceeded its goals. The company improved the efficiency of its offices and manufacturing sites and upped the efficiency of many of its products too. Its Bravia LCD TV now requires 30 percent less power than it did in 2008 and its Blu-ray disc recorder models require 50 percent less power. The waste reduction was mainly achieved through an increase in recycling practices.  The one target that Sony failed to meet was for volatile organic compound emissions — it was shy by 5 percent. These improvements were all made under the tech giant’s Green Management 2010 plan.  Now going forward, Sony has a more ambitious plan.  The company announced its Road to Zero plan last year that includes a pledge to be zero carbon by 2050.  The next phase in the plan sees the company making the following reductions by 2015 compared to 2008 levels. a 30 percent reduction in annual energy consumption a 10 percent reduction in product mass a 16 percent reduction in packaging waste a 14 percent reduction in transport CO2 emissions Let’s hope Sony can exceed these targets as well. via Treehugger

Comments Off on Crafty and Green Book Review: 52 Projects by Jeffrey Yamaguchi

Since I craft through an eco-minded ethic, I have a habit of reading regular craft books through a green perspective , looking for the following characteristics: how friendly are the projects to being performed with eco-friendly practices, how mindful are the projects to a sustainable worldview, how well do the projects work in opposition to a consumerist, commercial culture? Although Jeffrey Yamaguchi’s 52 Projects, based on his 52 Projects blog , is a little light on the how-to, step-by-step, hands-on tutorial component of your typical crafty book, 52 Projects works through a premise that we have the responsibility to bring meaning to our own lives through our own work, and this is a very green and crafty mindset.
