Panasonic has been highly scored for its disclosure and environmental performance, being listed in both the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI) and the Carbon Performance Leadership Index (CPLI).
The survey covered over 4,700 of the largest corporations worldwide, including companies in the FTSE Global Equity Index Series (Global 500).

Panasonic is the only Japanese company listed in both the CDLI and the CPLI. This is the third time Panasonic has been in the CDLI, previous occasions being 2007 and 2008.
