Activities in Each Country
Solving Social Issues in Emerging and Developing Countries
The emerging and developing countries of the world are currently facing avariety of social issues related to subjects including poverty, energy,education, food, medicine, and health. At Panasonic, we see doing everything we can for regional development through our main line of business as our mission. We put our technologies, solutions, and expertise to active use toward resolving regional social issues.
Support for Learning
At Panasonic, we believe that support for learning is an important activity that should be undertaken on a global scale, based on the understanding that a sustainable society is created by people.
Panasonic is involved in a variety of programs that make the most of our strengths and resources with a view to supporting children and young people in regions all over the world in developing the skills and abilities they will need to thrive in the future, as well as educating global human resources and providing them with opportunities to exercise their talents and abilities to their fullest toward the realization of their own dreams for the future.
Society needs to strengthen the organizational foundations of NPOs and NGOs if it is to sustainably
develop civic activities that aim to solve social issues toward the realization of a sustainable society. In 2001, Panasonic, in its efforts to put a special focus on this area within CSR activities, founded the Panasonic NPO Support Fund, a grant program that supports the strengthening of the organization foundations of NPOs and NGOs, which has continued its efforts toward this goal since its founding.
