"A company is a public entity of society. The mission of each corporation is to contribute to society. The company must exist harmoniously with each community and environment".
The above statement encapsulates a unique view of corporate responsibility, ahead of its time and inherently wise. It is this belief that shaped Matsushita's thinking and managerial style, "An enterprise uses society's resources, such as its people, capital, land and services and should, therefore, serve society in return".
Konosuke Matsushita served society through the invention, development and manufacture of products that enhanced people's lives, and his company has kept that commitment to society for over 80 years.
Panasonic Australia is a proud member of the Australian corporate community, with long-standing relationships amongst local manufacturers and individual employees. In keeping with Matsushita's philosophy, the company is committed to building good relationships with its customers, business partners and government on all levels.
Konosuke Matsushita, 1951

Our beliefs are our brand
"The streets are full of admirable craftsmen, but so few practical dreamers. Of course there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask 'how', while others of a more curious nature will ask 'why'. Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information".
- Man Ray.
Panasonic believes practical dreams are the way to move society forward, which is why our products are engineered with "built in genius"
Panasonic started with a humble desire: to create things of value.
Products that would anticipate consumer needs and make their daily lives just that little bit better.
We're dreamers, but our dreams have always been firmly tied to reality.
We don't dream about products that can change the world, but products that can help people change the world.
We ask 'why?' rather than 'how?'
We have always championed the un-trapped mind
We believe that great ideas can come from anywhere and from anyone, and that information must come with inspiration.
We believe that genius lies in evolution; that big strides start with small steps.
We hold hard work and determination as the highest values, and we put everything we have into the relentless pursuit of these values.
