Management and promotion system
Panasonic establishes its annual environmental policy based on overall Management Policy and Green Plan 2018. This policy is then thoroughly notified corporate-wide through the Environmental Working Committee, which is led by the director in charge of environmental affairs and consists of environmental compliance administrators from business domain companies and regional headquarters. The environmental performance data resulting from each activity is collected monthly (or annually) per business site in order to determine the progress being made, and additional measures are introduced as necessary. The annual performance data is disclosed after a third-party review, and comments made by stakeholders are utilized to improve the policy and its measures. As a means of performance data assessment, the size of contribution in reducing CO2 emissions and resources recycling are used as the key management indicators, along with the amount of sales and operating profits. In particular, CO2 emissions reduction is linked to the business performance evaluations of business domain companies.
In addition to the Environmental Working Committee, dedicated committees for corporate-wide key issues are set up with working groups composed of major domain companies and experts. Specifically, the Corporate CO2 Reduction Contribution Promotion Committee and the Corporate Resources Recycling Promotion Committee are established to propel related activities company-wide.
In July 2011, the Corporate Electricity Saving Division that bridges different departments and offices was newly established. The Division is responsible for centrally and efficiently managing adaptation to changes in power supply conditions in Japan after the Great East Japan Earthquake, and will accelerate productivity improvements and management structure reinforcement through energy conservation.
