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 officers in charge of CSR sets Daikin's CSR direction and monitors the progress of CSR activities. Under this committee, their staff in the CSR & Global Environment Center lead comprehensive, cross-organizational CSR activities throughout the entire group.
In the 10 years since we formulated Our Group Philosophy, 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. In 2011, the Daikin Group set targets for the coming five years that will determine our future. These targets reflect our resolve to step up our past activities and continue being a company that earns the trust of society.
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 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.
We believe that the Daikin Group's CSR is to conduct business that puts Our Group Philosophy into practice and fulfills our responsibility to society by meeting the expectations of shareholders.
In light of the unique characteristics and business plans of Daikin, a global manufacturer of air conditioners and fluorochemicals, we conduct CSR based on key themes in four areas: the environment, quality & customer satisfaction, human resources, and social contribution.
In fiscal 2011, we launched our Fusion 15 strategic management plan, under which we strive to achieve medium- and long-term CSR goals and respond to the demand of society.
