Sony Music – using recycled-paper CD jackets

Japanese Sony Music Entertainment Japan Inc. (SMEJ), one of the largest corporations in the global music industry, has started using recycled paper in CD jackets and lyric cards of all newly released CDs. This change will replace an annual consumption of nearly 1,500 tons of virgin paper with recycled paper as part of the company’s efforts at environmental management.



JfS reports that Sony Music’s initiative to use recycled paper was made possible after a subsidiary in the printing business obtained the capabilities needed to print on special recycled paper, and improved its capacity for digital printing.



SMEJ acquired ISO 14001 certification, the international standard of the environmental management systems, on February 20, 2002
