Example 1: Cold Chain Transport
Fresh food and pharmaceutical products have an optimal temperature to be transported in.
Moving them in undesired temperatures may cause the products to be damaged and not to be consumable anymore.
This causes unnecessary wastage that is both expensive and not environmentally friendly.
Panasonic seeks to play a part in sustainability by creating an environment that has prolonged cool temperatures by using cold storage technology.
Transportation and storage of fresh products.
Refrigerating and freezing.
Panasonic hopes to co-create with technology partners a business model that can provide safe food from production to distribution and consumption, playing a part in sustainability.
