Greener electronics Panasonic ranking: Second Edition

Publication - 6 December, 2006
Panasonic’s overall score has improved, but it has still moved down the ranking compared to other companies that have made faster progress. Extra points have been earned for its support of the Precautionary Principle, and for its reporting of the quantities of discarded products it takes back and recycles. However, despite very comprehensive web pages on chemicals management and the elimination of polyvinyl chloride in some applications, Panasonic scores poorly on its lack of a commitment to eliminate brominated flame retardants, no support for Individual Producer Responsibility and its limited voluntary take-back programmes.
