Panasonic believes technology should move us forward as a society. See how we’re making an impact.
Contributing to society has been a core value of our company for over a century. These early words from our founder, Konosuke Matsushita, continue to inspire us to this day: “Recognizing our responsibilities as industrialists, we will devote ourselves to the progress and development of society and the well-being of people through our business activities, thereby enhancing the quality of life throughout the world.”
In our view, technology should move us all forward. It should enable us to create abundance out of scarcity, power the things that make our lives easier, and energize our perpetual ambition for progress. Starting with this mindset, we invest in technological innovation that will inspire and amaze, focusing on five important areas.
We’re at the forefront of seismic transformation in the way people physically move through the world. That includes development of electric-powered, connected and autonomous vehicles; intelligent roadway ecosystems; solar microgrids; technologies that elevate the airline experience or stimulate ride-sharing; even smart streetlights, bus shelters and directional signage.
For nine consecutive years, Panasonic has been recognized as a leader in sustainability. We’ve been a pioneer in solar photovoltaic panels, electric vehicle batteries and data center battery-backup solutions, as well as new technologies like hydrogen fuel cells
We partner with some of the world’s leading media, entertainment and sports organizations to create live entertainment that immerses fans in the experience, overlaying the physical world with digital technology. And we bring that same world-class expertise to other venues, including concert halls, university classrooms, museums, theme parks, houses of worship, even retail environments.
From manufacturing facilities to warehouses to stores, we’re working with major customers and partners to bring digital transformation to the supply chain ¬– through automation, robotics, IoT and data analytics, and mobility.
We’re empowering consumers to live life to the fullest and pursue their passions in photography, media entertainment, gourmet cooking, and beauty and grooming. We do this by harnessing advanced technologies, human-centric design and superior Japanese craftsmanship and reliability.
It is because of our deeply held beliefs – about the workplace, the community and the environment – that we strive to look beyond ourselves and do bigger things. In many areas, from education to sustainability, Panasonic’s global efforts are vital to continued progress. Learn more about how we turn our beliefs into action to create real social impact.
