In October 2012, PMMAF obtained ISO14001 certification, an environment management system that is still rarely implemented in companies in the Middle East region. The certification proves that Panasonic’s Environmental Management System has been measured against a best practice standard and found compliant. With this third-party certificate, PMMAF has now been publically accredited for its environmental management implementation.
In 2014, Panasonic Marketing Middle East & Africa FZE (PMMAF) was the first company in the UAE electronics industry to receive the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by Middle East Centre for Sustainable Development (MECSD). The certificate is awarded to operators of existing buildings who implement sustainable practices and reduce the environmental impacts of their buildings, while addressing the major aspects of ongoing building operations.
