Panasonic Corp. is showcasing energy solutions for achieving sustainable lifestyles at the Japan Pavilion, which opened June 13 in the Athletes Park in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in advance of the United Nations Rio+20 conference, June 20 to 22, 2012.

The Japan Pavilion is in the main venue of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, or Rio+20. Panasonic's exhibition is part of Japan's joint public- and private-sector initiative aiming to demonstrate Japan's contribution to sustainable development, which is one of the main themes of the Rio+20 conference.

The Panasonic booth features the company's solutions for creating, storing and saving energy, including solar panels, storage batteries, energy management systems, energy-saving appliances, and systems that link those devices and equipment to optimize energy use at homes. The Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town project, promoted by Panasonic and its partners, is also featured as an example that employs such solutions. The town is located on the outskirts of Tokyo and is scheduled to open by March 2014, with homes to be occupied by 2018. The town as a whole intends to reduce CO2 emissions by 70% compared to the 1990 levels.

Panasonic has announced a strategy to become the No. 1 Green Innovation Company in the Electronics Industry by 2018, the 100th anniversary of its founding.
