CSR Management Structure

Comprehensive, Cross-Organizational Action Group-Wide

Firmly grounded in corporate ethics and legal compliance, the Daikin Group’s CSR efforts are aimed at contributing to society through its business activities.

The CSR Committee, chaired by the officer in charge of CSR, sets Daikin’s CSR direction and monitors the progress of CSR activities. Under this committee, staff in the CSR & Global Environment Center lead comprehensive, cross-organizational CSR activities throughout the entire group.

In fiscal 2015, based on changes in the external environment, such as external expectations and demands and accelerating business expansion, we deliberated with the CSR Committee on the responsibilities Daikin must fulfill and the value it must provide. As a result, the Fusion 20 strategic management plan culminating in fiscal 2020 incorporates plans for Daikin to create social value through its business activities and to achieve sustainable growth together with society.

Materiality (of Key Initiatives)

Identifying Materiality Across the Entire Value Chain

When we formulated Fusion 20 in fiscal 2015, we took a look at what was important to Daikin and as a result came up with four key CSR themes— the environment, new value creation, customer satisfaction, and human resources—aimed at sustainable growth for both Daikin and society.

Our management focus on these four themes was incorporated into Fusion 20. We will consider the impact on society of our business strategies and globalization in relation to each of these four themes, and establish CSR targets and plans accordingly.

Materiality Selection Process

Materiality evaluation involves selecting which CSR initiatives should take top priority. Evaluation was conducted with consideration in two areas: concerns and impacts of stakeholders (on the right page), which include stakeholder engagement, international guidelines, and criteria of socially responsible investment survey institutes; and importance to Daikin, which includes Our Group Philosophy and medium-term management plans. In future, we will gather an even wider range of opinions from outside the company and reflect these in our medium-term CSR targets and plans.

History of CSR Activities

Deepening Focus on Key Issues in Response to Society's Expectations

Daikin has rapidly expanded as a global corporate group, and with this expansion have come greater demands from society and greater corporate social responsibility (CSR).

We have striven to fulfill our CSR by responding to the expectations of our various stakeholders while implementing our Group management philosophy.

Daikin Formulates Our Group Philosophy as Its Basic Philosophy of Business

Daikin formulated Our Group Philosophy with the aim of becoming a corporate group trusted by worldwide customers and where employees in all countries could work with pride. By sharing Our Group Philosophy as the fundamental business philosophy of the entire Group, it has become the cornerstone of all employees' thoughts and actions.

The management policies and plans of Daikin Industries, Ltd. and all other Group companies were created in line with Our Group Philosophy, and we believe that the embodiment of this philosophy has brought us closer to becoming a truly global and excellent company.

Daikin Establishes Key Themes with Consideration for Business Plans and Impact on Stakeholders

In light of the unique characteristics and business plans of Daikin, a global manufacturer of air conditioners and fluorochemicals, we established key CSR themes in four areas: the environment, quality & customer satisfaction, human resources, and social contribution.

Active CSR Based on the Fusion 15 Strategic Management Plan

Revision of Key Themes in Line with Fusion 20 Strategic Management Plan

When we formulated Fusion 20, we revised the materiality of various efforts to the Daikin Group, and as a result came up with four key CSR themes — the environment, new value creation, customer satisfaction, and human resources — as ways to carry out CSR for value provision. We added to this the theme of fundamental CSR, thus giving us five key themes under Fusion 20.
