Panasonic has been a leader in voluntary recycling programs around the world for more than a decade. The company is focussed on recycling electronics and developing products and packaging that are sustainable and re-usable from initial design to collection to end-of-life.
In Australia, Panasonic was a foundation member of Product Stewardship Australia (PSA) and worked with government to introduce a scheme for the collection, re-use and recycling of end-of-life TVs and refrigerant from air conditioners. Panasonic is now working with other technology and consumer electronics companies within the Australia and New Zealand Recycling Platform (ANZRP) to see a national scheme implemented in 2012.
In the video below, Steve Rust, Managing Director of Panasonic Australia, discusses the business case for Panasonic’s approach to product stewardship in Australia and internationally.Tags: ANZRP, Australia, Corporate Member, electronics, end-of-life, Global Product Stewardship Council, members, National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme, Packaging, Panasonic, product stewardship, Product Stewardship Australia, recycling, refrigerant, Steve Rust, sustainability, technology, TV, voluntary
