Panasonic Air Conditioning has come on board as a sponsor for the 2019 HVACR Leadership Awards.

Panasonic Air Conditioning joins ABB, Daikin, Kirby, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioners Australia and Toshiba as sponsors of this year's awards program.

Panasonic Australia product marketing manager, air conditioning, Jack Tey, said the company will sponsor the Leader in Energy Savings and Sustainability Award.

Tey said this particular award category was important to Panasonic Air Conditioning because it has strong synergies for the business.

He said Panasonic Air Conditioning’s vision is to continue to expand its environmental efforts toward a sustainable society while providing a better life for customers, in line with its corporate philosophy "A Better Life, A Better World."

“The winner of this category will have an opportunity to demonstrate qualities that show a commitment towards protecting our environment by offering energy-efficient solutions that encourage a sustainable use of resources,” Tey said.

“As well as the award category, Panasonic Air Conditioning was impressed by the overall program because its important to recognise excellence.

“Panasonic has been marketing air conditioners for over 60 years, and is focused on continually innovating with each new product release.

“We’d like to recognise fellow innovators who support a sustainable global environment.”

Tey said Panasonic Air Conditioning has adopted R32 refrigerant in a large portion of its product line- up.

“It is an excellent heat transfer medium which leads to greater energy efficiency and cost effectiveness. R32 refrigerant also has a lower global warming potential than the previously used R410A,” he said.
