Movie studio Sony Pictures Entertainment aims to cut its carbon footprint by a further 15 per cent by 2020

The company behind films such as Skyfall, Django Unchained and the upcoming Elysium featuring Matt Damon (pictured), said it had cut emissions by 20 per cent since 2008, when it launched its ‘a greener world’ initiative.

One of the projects that contributed to the fall was a redesign of DVD packaging, which reduced emissions in the supply chain by 22 per cent.

In addition to the new 15 per cent goal, the company has also set targets to get its film and television production to achieve sustainable status.

Michael Lynton, CEO of Sony Pictures, said in a statement: “Sony Pictures has made incredible progress in creating a more sustainable organisation, across every part of the company from production to distribution, which is not only beneficial to our bottom line but increasingly valuable to our global employee population, our partners and customers around the world.
