Finding a Green Path Forward

Finding a Green Path Forward

Sustainability is woven into every aspect of our business. We perform our own projector design and manufacturing, not only complying with regulations like the RoHS directive but also conducting them with an exclusive emphasis on environmentally considerate practices. We take pride in making choices that lead to a cleaner environment and a brighter future.

Reduction of Hazardous SubstancesEnvironmental Contribution

Compliance with the RoHS Directive

When sourcing materials, Panasonic adheres to the RoHS directive, which restricts using ten specified substances. These substances comprise lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP). Embracing these guidelines isn't just about upholding regulatory standards. It's paving the way for safer, more environmentally conscious products.

Mercury-free Laser Light Sources

Mercury-free Laser Light Sources

Projectors with lamp light sources pose challenges since the lamps, which contain mercury, require periodic replacement and disposal. We addressed this issue in 2013 with the release of the PT-RW330, our first projector to feature a mercury-free laser light source, and have expanded our environmentally conscious laser projector lineup ever since. Furthermore, since laser modules boast a longer operating life than lamps, disposal of consumable parts and the associated environmental impact is dramatically reduced.

Eco-friendly Painting Processes


We've rethought the design of selected models' plastic parts, such as the projector enclosure. We achieved a paint-free design with these models by re-evaluating materials selection and implementing surface treatments such as texture processing. This helps to reduce our carbon footprint through a reduction in CO2 emissions associated with painting and underscores our will to integrate eco-friendly practices without compromising on aesthetics or functionality.

Responsible Mineral SourcingCustomer Workflow / Social Contribution to the World

Tracking Minerals, Changing Lives

Tracking Minerals, Changing Lives

With a keen awareness of the societal implications of mineral sourcing, Panasonic endeavors to source minerals with integrity. Our in-house mineral-sourcing investigation, bolstered by the Responsible Minerals Initiative (RMI)-certified Responsible Minerals Assurance Process (RMAP) program, aims to illuminate supply chain paths and ensure we're not inadvertently contributing to conflicts or illicit activities. We strive to ensure our business aligns with ethical mineral sourcing practices through due diligence and collaboration with our suppliers.
