Thank you for reading Panasonic's Annual Report 2020. Panasonic positions its Annual Report as an integrated report incorporating management strategies for medium- to long-term growth; environmental, social and governance (ESG) systems and initiatives that provide a foundation for sustained growth; and operating results, financial position and other information. It is published primarily for investors.
Section one of the Annual Report 2020 contains the message from the CEO discusses progress on the Mid-term strategy—which aims to break away from low-profitability structure—as well as management's medium- to long-term approach beyond the COVID-19.
The message from the CFO looks back on mainly the Mid-term strategy and financial situation from a financial officer's perspective, key initiatives for fiscal 2021, and initiatives on ESG as one platform that underpins the Company's business activities.
Moreover, the section of "For profit growth and profitability improvement" also includes a message from the CSO regarding progress on business portfolio reform.
The other sections of the report, centering on ESG topics, are slated to be updated in December with the latest information about the Company's value creation process.
Aiming for sustained growth and increased corporate value, Panasonic will actively conduct dialogues with investors and invite opinions to be considered regarding the Company's management. Thank you for your further understanding and support for the Company.
