Panasonic is passionately committed to the environment and recognises the responsibility it has as a global corporate citizen to contribute to environmental protection through sustainable practices. By 2018, when Panasonic celebrates its 100th anniversary, we aim to be the number one “Green Innovation” company.
With the environment a central consideration in everything we do, it made sense for Panasonic to partner with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre in June 2011 to promote sustainable development through World Heritage conservation and environmental education for the next generation. Much has been achieved since the partnership kicked off, from the ‘UNESCO World Heritage Eco Learning Program’ for children through to the screening of ‘The World Heritage Special’ on the National Geographic Channel in 193 countries and regions since June 2011.
In 1995, Panasonic and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre created The World Heritage Calendar. In 2010 a web version was established which you can download to enjoy on your PC or tablet. You can view incredible photographs of world heritage sites, with a new one featured each month, and expand your knowledge of each site by reading the trivia column.
In this small way, Panasonic hopes to draw attention to the importance of preserving these invaluable sites around the world. The video ‘UNESCO World Heritage: Treasures common to all’ captures the magnificent wonder of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in stunning image quality.
