David A. Thompson, Director of Environmental Affairs at Panasonic Corporation of North America, returns to Green is Good to discuss his nearly 30-year environmental journey with the company. In the past, Thompson has worked on initiatives on recycling batteries and curbing the growing e-waste problem. This has led to an increased focus on green education.

“We have a corporate goal of making educational materials and opportunities available to students around the world,” Thompson says. “Kids are the next generation. They will determine how sustainable our future is. What they will decide will depend on the type of education they receive.”
