Our visionary Founder, Konosuke Matsushita, believed that our primary responsibility was to contribute to the betterment of society. His philosophy still guides our actions today. From our LEED Platinum Panasonic Corporation of North America HQ facility in Newark, N.J., to the comprehensive energy-saving measures we’ve implemented in all of our factories, we remain dedicated to minimizing the environmental impact of our operations around the globe. In recognition, Interbrand’s 2014 Best Global Green Brands study ranked Panasonic the #1 green electronics company in the world. ENERGY STAR® has also recognized a great many of our products for their energy efficiency, while awarding our ventilation fans with their Sustained Excellence designation for the past five years.
