Committing to Socially Responsible Technology with Panasonic’s David Thompson

December 14, 2009

John and Mike speak with David Thompson, Director of Panasonic’s Environmental Department. Since the 1930s, Panasonic has been committed to socially responsible technology, so that the corporation can “contribute to the betterment of society” through its products. In today’s society, Panasonic focuses on green goals — not only for its products, but also for its factories and employees. Dave discusses how Panasonic works to eliminate hazardous materials, reduce CO2 emissions, and use energy-efficient designs to improve products. Panasonic is introducing innovative ideas and products into the market, including a home fuel cell that can be used to generate electricity.
