Environment:Environmental Management Systems

Establishment of Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

As the foundation of environmental sustainability management, Panasonic established EMS in all of our manufacturing sites across the world in fiscal 1999, and has continued to have the sites ISO14001 certified since then.

In order to further reinforce those efforts, we have set a basic policy to establish Environmental Management Systems in all our sites-both manufacturing and non-manufacturing-across the world, and to have all these sites ISO14001-certified in principle. In October 2011, we published the Environmental Management System Establishment Guidelines, which summarizes EMS concepts for different business forms such as production, sales/services, and head office tasks. Based on the guidelines, we are promoting EMS throughout the entire Group.
