The avoidance of pollutants in the production process

With the aim of protecting the environment and its customers, Panasonic has developed and implemented its own management system for chemical substances in products, with chemical substances managed throughout the global supply chain, production and use of products.

Use of chemicals - Control and care throughout the Supply Chain

Panasonic complies with the relevant laws and regulations in each country, and the laws on chemicals in products are becoming increasingly stringent. This is particularly true in the EU, because according to the REACH regulations, the communication and disclosure of information for certain chemicals is mandatory.

Use of chemicals - Control and care throughout the Supply Chain

In addition, the company conducts business activities in line with its fundamental corporate policy of reducing the impact of chemical substances throughout the product life cycle - from material procurement to production, customer use and disposal.

In this context, the company has established “Chemical Substances Management Rank Guidelines”, which contain the legal requirements worldwide and are used both internally by Panasonic and with its suppliers.

To protect people and the environment, Panasonic has also developed a Group-wide management system to monitor chemical substances throughout its global supply chain.
