Panasonic announced mid- and long-term environmental management plans Tuesday, beginning with the designation of its Kusatsu manufacturing facility as a âEco Ideas Factory.â The Kusatsu Factory of Matsushita Home Appliances Co. will serve as a testing ground for three of the companyâs environmental concepts revolving around manufacturing, products and community. For instance, the company plans to put its manufacturing practices under the glass to identify ways to make its casting, air-pressing, molding and coating processes more emissions friendly. The company wants to cut 29,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions from its manufacturing processes by March of 2010, equal to a 23 percent reduction in emissions per basic unit.
