Recycling of Panasonic PCs in Japan
Since fiscal 2002, we have been recycling our personal computers (PCs) in Japan through dedicated transportation and recycling companies. The recycling program was initially limited to business-use PCs, but was extended to home-use PCs in October 2003. Total 4,223 units of PCs were processed in fiscal 2016, with a recycling rate of 45.2%.
