Contribute to the Enhancement of Competitiveness and Brand Value Both in Terms of Defensive and Offensive Aspects
The Quality and Environment Sector supports operations related to quality, environment, and product regulations within the Panasonic Group.
In the quality area, we implement "defensive" quality assurance initiatives involving quality management systems, product safety, risk management, and development of human resources in charge of quality management operations and disseminating "offensive" quality management such as customer value creation across the Panasonic Group.
In the environment area, we handle a broad range of initiatives. In addition to the establishment of the structures required for legitimate management of hazardous substances, waste, and other environmental burdens at business divisions, we are planning visions and action plans, and disclosing and disseminating information to external stakeholders as part of our measures to address urgent climate change issues.
In the product regulation area, we are engaged in a wide sphere of compliance initiatives, i.e., we gather, analyze, and distribute information about the establishment and revisions of global product regulations, provide systematic training on laws and regulations, and carry out lobbying activities for minimizing future legal risks.
