Global Warming Prevention

Panasonic Group is making efforts for continual improvement in energy saving constitution, and introduction of renewable energy such as solar power generation.
Our company's CO2 emissions in fiscal 2022 were reduced by 13.7% (compared to the previous fiscal year) globally, partly due to a decrease in production.

Reduction of CO2 emissions

Based on Panasonic GREEN IMPACT, the Panasonic Group's a long-term group vision for a carbon-neutral society, we are promoting energy-saving activities and the introduction of renewable energy. 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.

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.

Major challenges

  • Sharing examples of activities for energy saving and introduction of renewable energy and promoting optimum standardization by using energy saving committee and intranet
  • Steady promotion of business plan with performance management and visualization
  • Reinforcement of energy saving activities at overseas sites

Energy saving case examples

  1. By Installation and optimization of operating high-efficiency typed chillers, air-conditioners, vacuum pumps, and compressors,
    and control for compressors, clean rooms and dry rooms to conserve energy
  2. Investigating the losses of operation and optimization production, air compressors, and lightings by visualization of energy consumption, and measuring to protect air leakage.
  3. Improvement in productivity of facilities and yield ratio
  4. Sharing with promotion energy saving case examples by holding energy saving network event at overseas and improve the skills of energy saving promotion members.
  5. Developing energy conservation leaders through energy conservation diagnostic activities at domestic workplaces

Introduction of renewable energy

We are promoting the introduction of large-scale solar power generation systems at our manufacturing bases in Japan and overseas.
