Winning this prestigious award validates Panasonic's quest to become the No. 1 Green Innovation company in the electronics industry by 2018, coinciding with the company's 100th year anniversary.
In realising this vision, Panasonic has made 'environment' central to all its business activities - from leading innovations in green technology, to promoting eco-friendly products and solutions, to reducing the environmental impact of business operations.
Taking a leadership role in environmental business, Panasonic shares its green technologies and initiatives at major global trade events. The Panasonic Energy Solutions Development Centre Singapore was recently established to conduct research and development of energy solutions to be rolled out locally, regionally and globally.
At the core of its business lies a dedicated committee that spearheads environmental outreach programmes for both employees and the general public. Programmes such as the first-ever mangrove biodiversity monitoring incite environmental awareness as well as inculcate green values in Panasonic employees and their families. The Environment Champion (Schools) Industry Module (Singapore) invite youths to learn about Panasonic's green manufacturing processes such as waste metal recycling and wastewater treatment process at its 'eco ideas' model Factory, whilst the 'eco ideas' Challenge encourage them to implement environmental outreach projects in their schools/community.
