Acting with urgency

Over 1 billion people across the world use Panasonic products every day. That’s a big number, and it comes with an even bigger responsibility. Roughly 1% of global CO2 emissions from electricity consumption come from the use or manufacturing of our products. Addressing this issue begins with taking responsibility for our own role in the ongoing climate crisis. We call our contributions to this effort Panasonic GREEN IMPACT.

Rethinking how we move

Transportation makes up roughly 16.2% of global greenhouse emissions.*

As the world’s largest supplier of EV batteries, Panasonic is working to lower costs and increase production to meet the growing demand for this technology.

Rethinking how we live

Residential energy contributes roughly 11% of energy-related emissions.*

Solar energy reduces greenhouse gases, improves air quality and limits water use in energy production. Our products are making it easier than ever to harness the power of the sun.

Rethinking how we work

Rethinking how we work

Factories are responsible for roughly 24% of energy-related emissions.*

We’re testing alternative methods to fuel our factories to keep us moving toward a carbon-free future.

“In truth, without the resources of the world, there will be no businesses. Depleting natural resources will make it difficult for businesses to survive in the future. Businesses must think differently to have a business in the future.”

General Manager Circular Economy, Panasonic

Rethinking unsustainable systems

Panasonic believes that all businesses must approach manufacturing and business practices differently.

Alternative Energy

Alternative Energy

At Panasonic, we’re constantly exploring new technologies such as lighter, more powerful solar panels that can be used by more people in more places. We won’t stop until renewable energy is available to everyone.

Built to Last

Built to Last

Panasonic products are built to last. To help create a more sustainable future, we must now design products with their end in mind—ensuring that they can be reused and refurbished to avoid the permanent loss of precious resources.

Circular Economy

Circular Economy

Because prevailing business systems are linear and create unnecessary waste, we’re advocating for a circular economy model that regenerates end-of-life products to eliminate waste, safeguard resources and reduce pollution.

Tough Questions

As we deepen our commitment to sustainability, we’re asking ourselves these questions to continuously hold ourselves accountable.
