Improve peoples’ lives. Make the world a better place.
These are the simple guiding principles that have inspired every Panasonic product, technology and solution for nearly a century. For most of that time, that’s meant developing innovative consumer technologies and products. Today, as we approach our centennial anniversary, Panasonic is in the midst of an ongoing transformation to pursue the vision set forth by our Founder on a much larger scale, providing integrated technology solutions to businesses and municipalities, empowering them to enhance the experiences of their customers and citizens.

Today, in North America, our Smart City and enterprise solutions in Energy, Mobility, Connectivity and Imaging are helping to transform public spaces and communities with technologies that predict, adapt and respond to peoples’ needs. From smart homes and smart buildings that keep people safe, comfortable, productive and entertained to smart cars and intelligent transportation systems that improve roadway efficiency and have the potential to significantly reduce accidents to connected aircraft that will keep passengers connected even at 40,000 feet … Panasonic Smart technologies are helping businesses and government organizations meet their technology and sustainability goals, empowering people to live safer, greener, more connected lives, and helping us deliver on our Brand’s enduring promise — A Better Life, A Better World.

Message from the President of Panasonic

Creating “a new Panasonic” which achieves
“A Better Life, A Better World”

Since the founding of our company in 1918, we have been carrying out all of our activities following our basic management philosophy, which commits us to making a contribution through our business operations to improving the lives of people around the world, and to the further progress of society. Always making “people” central to our activities, and thereby focusing on “people’s lives,” we will continue to provide better living for our customers. This is the unchanging commitment we at Panasonic have had over many years.

And what we are aiming for now is to keep on providing “better living” everywhere, meeting the needs of each individual customer. In a variety of spaces where our customers go about their lives, spaces ranging from inside the home, the office, the store, the automobile, and the airplane, as well as the town, we will provide not only single pieces of hardware, but also total solutions including software and services. We will pursue the concept of “A Better Life, A Better World,” meeting the needs of each individual customer.

To that end, we will leverage the strengths that we at Panasonic have long developed in our consumer electronics business, and the strengths of our business partners who have in-depth expertise in each space, and will work to combine these strengths pursuing “Cross-Value Innovation.” In this way, we will create new value, value that has never been seen before. This is the new and challenging task we are now addressing.

Going forward, as we continue to carry out these activities, we will aggressively move forward and become “a new Panasonic.”
All of us at Panasonic will strive hard moving in this direction.

April 2015
President, Panasonic Corporation
