In order to achieve​ both "a better life" and "a sustainable global environment," Panasonic Industry is using a variety of our device technologies to develop products with the lowest possible environmental impact, helping to realize carbon neutral societies and a circular economy toward the aim of reducing the burden on our environment.

Strengthen Environmental Initiatives

Panasonic Industry is focused on achieving its Environmental Vision through working steadily to solve environmental issues affecting society. We are further speeding up the pace of efforts to combat the urgent issues of climate change and resource depletion as prime concerns to realize a society with a minimal impact on the global environment.

In 2022, the Panasonic Group established the Panasonic GREEN IMPACT, and in 2023, Panasonic Industry established the GX Strategy Promotion Center and Panasonic Industry's Environmental Vision. We aim to achieve net zero for Scope 1 and 2 by 2030, and net zero for Scope 1 to 3 by 2050.

Panasonic Industry's Environmental Vision

In order to achieve both “a better life” and “a sustainable global environment”, we will lead the progress of civilization with a variety of device technologies.
Together with our customers we will realize a society that has a minimal impact on the global environment.

2030 Target and KPI

In order to contribute to the decarbonization of society, we aim to achieve net zero for Scope 1 and 2, become carbon neutral at all our own factories, and use 100% renewable energy.
In order to contribute to realizing a circular economy, we aim to use recycled material utilization in compliance with local regulations in each country and achieve a factory waste recycling rate of 99% or more.

*1 Factories that have achieved net zero CO2 emissions by conserving energy, introducing renewable energy, and using credits.
*2 Percentage of electricity, fuel, etc. used by Panasonic Industry that is derived from renewable energy sources (includes certificates, credits, and other externally procured items)​
*3 Factory waste recycling rate = Amount of resources recycled / (Amount of resources recycled + Amount of landfill)​

Highlights of Our Initiatives

Aiming at net zero CO2 emissions in our production activities by 2030

CO2 emissions from factories will be cut through promotion of energy saving and use of renewable energy, to achieve carbon neutral manufacturing. We have set target to achieve net zero CO2 emissions in each region, and our aim is to achieve net zero CO2 emissions for all our manufacturing sites globally by 2030.

Saving energy
  • Improvement of operating loss and yield of production facilities
  • Introduction and replacement of equipment with less environmental impact
Renewable energy
  • Introduction of renewable energy such as solar power generation
  • Procurement of renewable energy using energy conservation benefits
We have set a roadmap to achieve net zero CO2 emissions for all our manufacturing sites by 2023 in China, by 2025 in Europe and North America, by 2027 in Southeast Asia, and by 2030 in Japan and Taiwan.

Contributing to lower environmental impacts through evolution of product performance

We are proactively seeking to develop and provide compact, lightweight, low loss and high durability products with minimal environmental impact in our broad lineup.​

Miniaturization and weight reduction
  • Reduction of materials and transportation energy
  • Contribution to miniaturization of mounted products
Low loss and high durability
  • Contributing to the environment by Reducing the Frequency of Replacement
  • Contribution to the reduction of materials and production energy

Weight reduction

Motors for industrial application
20% reduction compared to the previous model

We have achieved the highest speeds and torque in the industry in our MINAS A6 series of AC servo motors used in production machinery and industrial robots while reducing their weight by 20% (750 grams) compared to the previous model.


High heat resistance

Multi-layer circuit board materials
Support for lead-free soldering

In our MEGTRON® series of multi-layer PCB material for ICT infrastructure equipment we are using lead-free solder with high heat resistance and a high melting point compared to previous types.​


Long life at high temperatures

Conductive polymer capacitors
3x the previous model

For our SP-Cap® JX series of electroconductive polymer aluminum electrolytic capacitors we have achieved product life at high temperatures three times longer than previous products. In addition, by replacing multilayer ceramic capacitors with this product, we can realize more compact equipment taking up a smaller space.
