On October 13, 2011, nine Panasonic Group companies in Taiwan announced the ‘eco ideas’ Declaration in Taiwan at a dealers convention held at Denwell Taipei. The press conference saw an attendance of 50 people including four Taiwanese government officials, 35 journalists from 25 media outlets, and other related individuals.

President Akihiro Nakatani of Panasonic Taiwan Co., Ltd. (PTW) announced the declaration on behalf of the Panasonic Group in Taiwan. He touched on environmental movements in Taiwan and expressed his determination to contribute to fulfilling the government's policies and reducing environmental impact as a Green Innovation Company.

The announcement of the ‘eco ideas’ Declaration on October 13 was followed by a new product release event and ECO NAVI products (new vacuum cleaners and air purifiers) were unveiled. This resulted in the expansion of ECO NAVI product groups in Taiwan from four to six. The Panasonic Group in Taiwan is planning to increase the number of ECO NAVI product groups to ten by 2015.
