Solutions for energy efficiency

Overview

Energy efficiency is the ratio of the amount of energy consumed to the products and services obtained. It can be improved with the use and implementation of measures and investments in technology.

 

Panasonic will strive to ensure that CO2 emissions across its business operations – production and products used by its customers – reaches its peak in 2018, the centenary year of its foundation.

Currently Panasonic ranks 4th among sustainable enterprises in the world (Source: Interbrand and Deloitte):
