An Enduring Commitment to Sustainability

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.

Our Kind of Town

The Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town project is perhaps the most ambitious representation of our commitment to environmental responsibility. This thoroughly modern community showcases how we are able to enhance people’s lives with solar power, energy management and storage technologies, and smart solutions for security, mobility, and healthcare.
