In order to implement the PDCA cycle for environmental sustainability management, it is essential to collect a significant amount of environmental performance data on energy, waste, chemical substances, and water, etc. at each business site in a prompt and accurate manner. Panasonic has developed and introduced an environmental performance system as a means of globally collecting and managing environmental data from all our manufacturing sites. With this system, progress of initiatives are checked and issues are identified to help achieve our targets.
Panasonic has developed and implements its own chemical substance management system, GP-Web, which is compatible with industry standards for information disclosure in this area. Through this system, we gather information from about 10,000 suppliers of components and materials for our products, both inside and outside Japan, concerning the chemical substances used. Additionally, in order to reinforce the foundations of environmental sustainability management, we are also working on developing a system to measure the size of contribution in reducing CO2 emissions through products and the status of recycled resource usage.
