Our mission at Panasonic is to contribute to society in a positive way. This is Panasonic’s Basic Management Philosophy which expresses the purpose of our business activities as well as the purpose of our existence. It forms the foundation of all our business activities, including people, capital, and commodities, all of which come from society.

This is also the very essence of the Panasonic Group’s sustainability philosophy. As we stand at historical turning points in many areas today - socially, economically, environmentally - Panasonic will continue to contribute to society by solving environmental problems for a more sustainable world.
