Panasonic Sees Progress on PGI Initiative as the Standardization Effort on Avoided Emissions Picks Up Momentum

– Posted on September 15, 2023

While many companies regard “CO2 emissions reduction” as the primary indicator for assessing their initiatives on environments, Panasonic Group believes that another indicator, known as “CO2 Avoided Emissions (avoided emissions),” is equally important. Avoided emissions refers to CO2 emission reductions that occur outside of a company’s value chain and our strong focus on avoided emissions reflects our commitment not only to achieve our own CO2 emissions reduction targets, but also to contribute to reductions across society and customers.

In this article, Panasonic Newsroom Global unpacks the latest edition of Panasonic’s Sustainability Data Book 2023, explaining the definition of avoided emissions, our mid- to long-term goals for this indicator, key FY2023 outcomes, and key challenges as we continue to pursue a positive impact through the PGI initiative.
