Technology giant Panasonic and National Trust have joined forces in a bid to help the conservation charity move towards a “greener, more sustainable mode of operation”.

They have inked a three-year partnership, which will allow Panasonic to “showcase” its technologies. Visitors at selected National Trust sites will be able to loan its latest LUMIX cameras and help them capture memories of the day.

It will be expanded to deploying a range of energy efficient and clean technologies.

Dr. Roderick Hebden, Head of Corporate Partnerships at National Trust said the charity is working with Panasonic “to scope out future energy projects” and teams have been visiting some of the places it looks after.

He added: “As well as LED lights, they also supply solar panels, air source heat pumps and other technologies that could help us to achieve our 2020 energy targets to reduce our consumption by 20% and halve our fossil fuel use.”
