EcoVadis is a collaborative platform enabling companies to monitor the sustainable performance of their suppliers.

Ensuring sustainability in business is of growing interest in the current world. Business is expected to be sustainable and transparent in their performance both in their own organisation and global supply chains.

Since its founding in 1918, Panasonic has a strong mission to contribute to society through the products and services it provides. One of our core values is "We will devote ourselves to the progress and development of society and the well-being of people through our business activities, thereby enhancing the quality of life throughout the world". While the company engages in business activities using the resources entrusted by society, it also develops along with society, and so the company's activities must be transparent, fair and just.

Panasonic believes that the achievement of receiving EcoVadis Gold Rating proves our commitment and mission to contribute to society. We endeavour to continue improving our performance in sustainability in the future.
