Panasonic indicates that a given product is environmentally conscious by displaying environmental labels on the product and in our catalogues. This labeling is designed to convey our environmental technology information on the product in an easy-to-understand manner to help our customers make smart choices when considering which products to purchase.
ISO (International Standardization Organization) defines three categories of environmental labels: labels accredited by each country's third-party organization (Type I); labels self-declared by the business entity as environmentally-conscious (Type II); and labels displaying quantitative environmental impact data (Type III). We introduced an original design for our Type II label, carrying the phrase 'eco ideas.'
Panasonic currently works on promoting all three types of environmental labels globally. In addition to acquiring Japanese labels, we also acquire the International Energy Star label well recognized in Europe and North America, as well as Chinese labels.
