Panasonic Selected for the 12th Year Running for the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI World), 16th Year Running for the FTSE4Good Index Series


Tokyo, Japan - Panasonic Corporation was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI World) and the FTSE4Good Index Series, both world-renowned socially responsible investment (SRI) indexes. This is the twelfth consecutive year, starting in 2005, that the company was named to DJSI World and the sixteenth, starting in 2001, that it was similarly listed in the FTSE4Good Index Series.

DJSI World is a stock index created by S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC in the US and RobecoSAM AG in Switzerland that evaluates the sustainability of companies in terms of the economy, environment, and society. Each year, around 2,500 of the world's largest companies are evaluated, and only the top 10 percent of these companies are named to DJSI World. This year, there were 316 companies named to the index. Panasonic has been lauded for its operational eco-efficiency, climate strategy, and other environmental initiatives in the Leisure Equipment & Products and Consumer Electronics Industry category--which covers consumer products, such as electronics and cameras. Panasonic has also been recognized for its initiatives in risk management, and corporate citizenship as a responsible company.

The FTSE4Good Index Series was instituted by the London-based FTSE Group and covers companies that meet international standards concerning the environment, human rights, supply chain labor standards, countering bribery, and other criteria. These companies are selected from a survey of around 2,000 of the world's top publicly traded firms. Panasonic has, in particular, been recognized for its environmental initiatives overall, including those relating to its climate change, and other initiatives including policy and risk assessments relating to respecting human rights and anti-corruption.

Since its founding, Panasonic has striven to implement its management philosophy which states, "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." Panasonic has established "A Better Life, A Better World" as its brand slogan, based on its unchanging management philosophy that encapsulates Panasonic's vision of realizing a better world globally, through its contribution to the protection of the environment and other activities.

Through its business operations, and as a public entity of society, Panasonic aims to help build a sustainable society.
