Company Updates

  • COVID-19

    GSN Games, which SPE fully acquired last year, announced it raised $217,000 for Meals on Wheels America to support their COVID-19 Response Fund. The funds from its community of players will help meet the increased demand for nutritious meals and enable critical services to keep America's seniors safe and healthy. We are proud of the many ways Sony Pictures continues to give back during this time.

  • COVID-19

    Our renowned Sony Pictures Water Tower in Culver City turned blue as we joined the #LightItBlue campaign in solidarity with first responders and healthcare workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. In honor of Earth Day, the tower was also lit green last week. We hope these colors serve as a reminder of hope, unity, and gratitude during these unprecedented times.

We are a global company deeply committed to creating an inclusive business environment that represents the world around us. Our initiatives impact every area of our business, from the people in our offices and productions, to our content, viewers and vendors.

Great careers start here. Through the Sony Picture’s Television Diverse Directors Program, we provide opportunities for candidates to shadow established TV directors on episodes of Sony Pictures Television series.

We strive to partner with diverse suppliers. Sony Pictures Supplier Diversity program seeks to increase representation of minority-, woman-, LGBTQ-, veteran-, and disabled-owned businesses in its supply chain by connecting diverse-owned businesses with sourcing opportunities and providing developmental opportunities for diverse entrepreneurs.

We celebrate our unique voices. Through our Employee Business Resource Groups (EBRGs), we increase professional knowledge, expand networks and promote personal growth. EBRGs give people the opportunity to contribute to our culture, community and the bottom line in other ways outside of their everyday jobs.

GIVING BACK

Sony Pictures is committed to supporting the cultural vibrancy of the communities where its employees live and work. We empower employees to engage and advocate for the causes that are important to them.

We give back to our community through ACT (Sony Pictures employee volunteer program), the Volunteer Incentive Award program, Passing the Torch Mentoring Initiative, Matching Gift Program, Team Grant Program and Celebration of Arts & Culture opportunities.

Our partnerships make a lasting impact. Our local partners include: Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, Tree People, Midnight Mission, Heal the Bay, Big Sunday, Young Storytellers, Michelson Found Animals, Los Angeles Regional Foodbank and Big Brothers, Big Sisters.

A GREENER WORLD

Through “Sony Pictures A Greener World,” (Sony Pictures environmental initiative) the studio reduces its ecological footprint by pursuing sustainable activities and partnerships that combat climate change, preserve natural resources and protect the health and safety of our communities around the world in all activities of the business.

Our facilities are green. We reduce our environmental impact through a comprehensive program focused on limiting greenhouse gas emissions, conserving water, purchasing renewable energy, and minimizing waste.

Our employees have the opportunity to own sustainability initiatives at work and in the community through a variety of activities such as on-site composting, electric car charging and the garden club, which manages a fruitful garden on the studio lot for all to enjoy. The studio also provides micro-grants to employees seeking to implement a work-related sustainability action of their own, through the Idea to Action Grant program. The Greener World Grant program encourages employees to work with environmental non-profits by offering funding.
