Panasonic Intensifies its Environmental Communication Efforts in Indonesia
Currently, people in Indonesia are becoming more and more concerned about problems related to waste disposal as well as the increasing occurrence of floods due to abnormal weather conditions brought about by global warming. The awareness for environmental issues is growing especially, in its capital, Jakarta.
Under these circumstances, as an entity aiming to become a Green Innovation Company, we, at Panasonic have been pushing forwards with our environmental initiatives and brand marketing in Indonesia. Here are some examples of our activities.
Panasonic has appointed actress, Ms. Atiqah Hasiholan, as its Brand Ambassador in Indonesia. TV commercials and newspaper ads with an "environmental" theme have been launched in Indonesia from October 7, 2011.

Ms. Atiqah is an extremely popular, up-and-coming actress in Indonesia. Her keen interest in the environment and her appointment as Panasonic's Brand Ambassador will enable her to inform people in Indonesia about Panasonic's vision of becoming a Green Innovation Company in a simple and consumer-friendly way.
At the press conference held on October 21, Ms. Atiqah stated, "I'm honored to have been made an ambassador for Panasonic, a company that is famous for being innovative and environmentally friendly," and through the media she told the people of Indonesia, "there are things that all of us can do to help the environment, such as saving water, being diligent about turning off electricity and using energy-efficient, environmentally friendly products."
