Launch of Green House field trial in Mexico
Panasonic Mexico conducted the Green House project*1 in Mexicali, Baja California, in northwest Mexico from October 2011 to February 2012. The project was to study the energy conservation achievement in a green house installed with energy generation and energy saving devices. Immediately after installation of the devices, the energy consumption of the house was reduced by 40%. The project is expected to continue to achieve a 50% reduction in the total annual power consumption.
Based on this field trial, Panasonic continues its efforts in environmental contribution to Mexican society.

Environmental education in Brazil
In September 2011, Panasonic Brazil conducted environmental education for children for the second time in Brazil.
Led by the Panasonic Brazil Manus Factory, our employees gave an environmental lecture about global warming using a unique environmental program at a retail store in Manus. The lecture was followed by a hands-on experience session assembling a hybrid car using components discarded as waste from the factory. Not only children but their parents and customers at the store all joined in the activity and learned about the environment and enjoyed themselves.
