Panasonic has formulated Rules for Promoting Green Purchasing to ensure the basic policy of green purchasing in all business sites in Japan, and sets Green Purchasing Criteria for office supplies. A corporate purchasing system has been set to preferentially select eco-conscious items that meet the criteria when an employee places an order for office equipment. In this way, we promote green purchasing by selecting items not only according to its quality or price but also items that have less impact on the environment.

We decided to use FSC-certified paper mainly for corporate publications such as company brochures, and aimed to gradually increase the use to around 100 tons by 2010. The result of use in 2010 was 138 tons. We will continue to promote green purchasing of paper and accelerate activities for paperless work, and only use environmentally-conscious paper (except for cases where substitution of supplier is unfeasible).
