The European CSR activities are focussing on three major pillars as Environment, Society and Workplace. With our activities we want to act with the spirit of our founder, Konosuke Matsushita and contribute to the society and the environment in which we live.
"A company is a public Entity of Society. The mission of a corporation is to contribute to society. The company must exist harmoniously with each community and environment" - Konosuke Matsushita.
Pursue customer value through "Eco & Smart Solutions"
"Since the foundation of our company in 1918, we have been carrying out all of our activities following our management philosophy which commits us to making a contribution through our business operations to improving the lives of people around the world, and to the further progress of society. Always making "people" central to our activities and thereby focusing on "people's lives," we have been moving forward together with our customers.
And now, looking to 2018, the 100th anniversary of our founding, we are working under a grand vision of becoming a Green Innovation Company where we can integrate our environmental contribution and our business growth. As global environmental issues are becoming the biggest common challenge that the global community faces, starting with people's lives, we aim to take the lead in bringing about a green revolution, and create a society in which people's lives are enriched in a sustainable manner. We believe that this is the approach we should take to put into practice our management philosophy in today's world.”
