  • Sony Electronics will work with the EPA and with other pledge signers toward collectively expanding and improving America’s recycling capabilities
  • Sony Electronics has already partnered with ERI for recycling its electronics products
  • It has also developed SORPLAS – a plastic resin made of recycled plastics that can be recycled repeatedly.

Sony Electronics Inc. on Thursday reaffirmed its long-term commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship by becoming the first consumer electronics manufacturer to sign the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s America Recycles Pledge.

By signing the pledge, Sony Electronics has agreed to collaborate with the EPA and other pledge signatories to help identify solutions that create a more resilient materials economy and protect the environment.

To date, 76 organizations, including EPA, have signed the pledge and begun collaborative work exploring new models and methods for collecting and reusing recyclable materials.

“The America Recycles Pledge is our commitment to increase domestic recycling, and we are excited to welcome Sony Electronics as our first consumer electronics manufacturer to join the group of pledge signatories,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.

Sony Electronics extends electronics scrap recycling efforts

Mike Fasulo, president and chief operating office, Sony Electronics North America, commented, “As part of Sony’s comprehensive environmental plan, we think about our manufacturing materials in terms of having more than one life, and we constantly look for ways to extend the lives of these materials further and further.”

‘We are proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the EPA and other like-minded organizations toward collectively expanding and improving America’s recycling capabilities,” he added.

This would be an extension to the company’s own electronics scrap recycling efforts. For recycling electronics products, Sony Electronics has partnered with ERI, the largest recycler of electronics in the United States.

Sony has also pioneered the development of SORPLAS – a plastic resin made of recycled plastics that can be recycled repeatedly.

As of June 1, 2019, Sony uses SORPLAS in components of more than a dozen TV models, including the MASTER Series A9G 4K OLED TVs, MASTER Series Z9G 8K LED TVs and X950G Series 4K LED TVs, as well as various cameras, camcorders and other consumer devices.
