Building a more sustainable future

The climate crisis is the most urgent issue of our time. Addressing it is our responsibility.

Whether it’s in the small moments in our everyday lives or the larger, global needs that connect us all, our mission has always been to develop the solutions that can inspire hope for a better future. At Panasonic, we recognize the most immediate challenge in creating a better world for all is addressing the urgent needs presented by the climate crisis.

That is why Panasonic is committed to ecologically producing sustainable technologies that create a healthier planet where we can all thrive. New approaches to battery recycling and cobalt reclamation, investing in renewable energy, and innovating products that are built to last are some of the ways we’re making an impact. 

By imagining a better future – and by working to make it a reality – we hope to create the foundation for a more just, fair and prosperous society, thereby enabling people to live their best, most fulfilling lives.


Moving forward in addressing the climate crisis starts with an honest assessment of our own impact on the environment: Panasonic emits 2.2 million tons of CO2 annually because of its business operations. The emissions resulting from the worldwide customer use of our product are estimated to be more than 110 million tons. Together, these figures are estimated to amount to 1% of the world’s total electricity consumption. 

Our GREEN IMPACT initiative is a promise to do better. With GREEN IMPACT, we’ll reduce the CO2 emissions of our business operations to net-zero by 2030. We will accomplish this by implementing renewable energy systems at each site, as well as utilizing solar and hydrogen energy technologies.

By 2050, our goal is to reduce CO2 emissions from our own value chain and those of society by 300 million tons, or 1% of current global emissions, through products, services and new technologies that help others avoid emissions. We also aim to achieve net-zero Scope 3 emissions, which includes emissions generated through both business operations and through the use of our products.

Through strengthening our efforts in this area – and providing our energy-saving solutions to our customers in the business and government spaces – we will work to help create more sustainable systems and build a greener, more equitable future.
