In line with its "Road to Zero" global environmental plan, Sony continues to work toward reducing consumption and increasing the reuse and recycling of materials across its products and business activities.
Recognised in the prestigious Asian Packaging Federation AsiaStar awards
The Asian Packaging Federation has awarded the prestigious AsiaStar 2018 award in the Eco-Package (Environmentally Sustainable Package) category to the aibo package developed by Sony. The award recognises packaging "designed with special consideration for the environmental impacts of the package and product during its whole lifecycle."
From plastic bottles to aibo's new packaging
A challenge requiring both design and technology
Designers and engineers worked together to realise both the environmental goals and the concept of aibo's awakening from a protective package, considering design, cost and scratch-resistance. The high proportion of recycled material also presented its own challenges.
