Panasonic Automotive sites in America since a few years ago started to work in the definition of our roadmap to achieve zero CO2 emission. In 2021 a treasure hunt event was initiated to identify energy saving opportunities, the result of this event was amazing and was developed a pool of projects using a multidisciplinary team. For example: changing to LED lighting solutions, adding timers to lighted arears, improving efficiency of equipment such as air compressors, shutting lines off when not in production, changing the set temperature for air conditioning equipment, HVAC filter replacement and cleaning, air compressor leaks hazard hunt, re distribution of air conditioning spaces and change of HVAC equipment for equipment with high efficiency.
This activities leaded PASA to achieve 24% improvement vs our environmental goal (Reduce 1% vs FY20 CO2 tons emission per 1000 units produced). The 3 manufacturing sites are ISO 14001 certified sites and as well are working on environmental initiatives looking to improve efficiency regarding water use, waste generation and hazardous materials use. Additionally, as part of the employee awareness there was an environmental campaign "Act, be aware and transcend" looking to empower the Panasonic employees to;
Develop environmental activities that contribute to improve environmental performance efficiency including home activities,
Participate in environmental contest, learning and teaching environment sustainability to new generations.
Generating opportunities to transcend just like plant trees or ecological hikes.!
