For more than a century, Panasonic has been discovering ways to address the biggest challenges that impact the world we live in. From our products to our processes, we seize every opportunity to make a positive impact on people and the planet. This was a vision set forth by our founder in 1918 and a vision that continues to be the driving force as we transform our business today.  

There’s nowhere else in the world where this vision is clearer than in our North American market.

Today, we are anticipating and responding faster than ever to the needs of individuals, businesses, governments, and communities seeking comfort, connectivity, efficiency, mobility and more. From developing refrigerant technology that has 99% less environmental impact, to intelligent roadways that could reduce vehicle crashes by 80%, to battery technologies that enable electric cars, trucks and bikes -- significantly shrinking our carbon footprint, our disruptive technologies are moving us towards another 100 years of delivering A Better Life, A Better World.

Aiming to overcome global-scale difficulties

First of all, I would like to express my most sincere condolences to the families and friends of all those who have passed away due to COVID-19, as well as express my heartfelt wishes of recovery for those who are now suffering from the disease. We at Panasonic truly hope that all people return to safe and secure lives as soon as possible, and, through our business and social activities, we are firmly resolved to make our utmost efforts to fulfil our responsibilities as a public entity of society.

The difficulties we face worldwide today will eventually change our society and daily life in a drastic manner. For instance, the restrictions on activities imposed by many countries are accelerating the dissemination of various digital technologies into our homes and offices, which has compelled us to drastically change our values. Moreover, how to maintain a good physical and mental condition in everyday life will become a greater challenge than ever before.

Continuously addressing these changes while still making contributions to society and people’s lives: This is the mission Panasonic must pursue, as a company that has stayed close to people’s lives and worked to solve social problems over the past 100 years. By leveraging our cutting-edge technologies, we at Panasonic will continue to take up a variety of challenges with the aim of helping people to live healthier lives in the way most suitable for each individual, as well as helping to solve a variety of social issues. It is my firm belief that, through these endeavors, Panasonic will continue to create new contributions to people around the world, even after the COVID-19 outbreak abates.

I have no doubt that the world has the ability to eventually overcome the COVID-19 crisis.

Panasonic will walk alongside society in overcoming the current difficulties, and, always staying close to people’s lives, it will continue to work toward “A Better Life, A Better World” by taking on new challenges toward offering each individual customer his or her own optimal, comfortable life.

So I would like to ask for your continued support and patronage of Panasonic.
