Sony withdraw support from 10:10

Looks like Sony were as repelled by the 10:10 thing as anyone.

Over at k2p:

Sony has supported the 10:10 climate change campaign because we share its objective to reduce carbon emissions. However, we strongly condemn the “No Pressure” video which was conceived, produced and released by 10:10 entirely without the knowledge or involvement of Sony. The company considers the video to be ill-conceived and in extremely bad taste.

As a result we have taken the decision to disassociate ourselves from 10:10 at this time.

Nick Sharples
Director of Corporate Communications
Sony Europe

Press release expected tomorrow.

UPDATE: Any mention of 10:10 has now been removed from Sony's Wikipedia entry here. A Google search brought up the following:

In 2010, Sony became a sponsor of the 10:10 global warming mitigation group and funded the making of the No Pressure film.

But it had been removed from the Wiki page.



  1. Aha. Cross-posting. Thought I'd scooped that one on the earlier comment!

    Must be a sign of ever-increasing blog traffic!
