Corporate Impact

Sony Pictures is actively building the future of entertainment through investment in technology and people. At Sony Pictures, we are committed to pursuing business practices that sustain the growth and renewability of our industry, the health and well-being of consumers and our employees; and the vibrancy of the world around us.


Technical innovation brings new tools to those behind the camera and new experiences to those in front of the screen; and we, as an industry and as a company, continue to adapt to nearly 100 years of progress and counting. From new digital products and services like ULTRA or Crackle, to the latest Visual Effects and animation techniques and technology, we are charting a new path for the future of entertainment. At the same time, we believe in the importance of preserving our history through education and advocacy.


We believe companies that are good citizens to the world help sustain their own and others' futures. We give back to our local communities and empower employees to engage with their colleagues to benefit the community, individuals, and our company. Our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts are focused on arts, education, diversity and the environment, as well as giving in the communities closest to our headquarters.

  • Arts & Education
    • As we look to build equity and provide opportunities and career pathways to jobs in the entertainment sector for under-served youth in the communities where we live and work, Sony Pictures is dedicated to providing the tools and access to the next generation of workers in the creative economy. We do this through investments in initiatives that restore arts education curriculum to local schools and through collaboration, contribution and employee engagement. The company has helped establish and fund unique programs such as the specialized Academy of Visual and Performing Arts at Culver City High School, the Sony Pictures Media Art Program with the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs and CalArts Community Arts Partnership, and Los Angeles County Arts Commission's "Arts for All" initiative.

    • Sony Pictures is committed to playing our part towards greater environmental responsibility. In line with Sony Corporation's Road to Zero program, we are an ISO 14001 certified studio as well as promote a number of initiatives under the Sony Pictures a Greener World banner.
