Company-wide systems to manage environmental risks
As a tool to continuously reduce environmental risks, Panasonic has established an Environmental Risk Management System specific to each business domain company and promotes (1) regular identification of environmental risks and company-wide management and (2) ensuring quick responses to reported environmental risks.
To identify environmental risks and implement the management system, the environmental risks that need to be managed are first determined based on the actual environmental risks reported from business domain companies and risk assessment results conducted across the entire company. These risks are then classified according to their occurrence frequencies and the degree of impact on business. Risks classified as major and thus require strict control are subject to, the PDCA approach, where countermeasures are established and implemented, and progress is checked and ensured.
If any environmental risk is reported, we work to promptly carry out emergency measures and countermeasures that meet the seriousness of the risk.
Managing waste management risks
Inappropriate disposal of waste can cause environmental problems, as well as inconvenience and concerns to the public. To address such situations, Panasonic utilizes, particularly in sites outside Japan, a waste checklist that is specifically tailored for its Japanese sites as standards for managing factory waste and selecting waste disposal operators. This checklist is first used to prepare in cooperation with a local expert a country-specific checklist based on the legislation of each relevant country, and then implemented. The Panasonic Group is also directing efforts in training in-house waste management experts by holding regular training sessions in Asian and European countries.
