Be it through educational or on-the-job opportunities, the Daikin Group promotes employee awareness of how our business affects the environment to encourage employees to take positive action for its preservation.
In Japan, we hold e-learning on the intranet once a year in order to enhance employees' understanding about the environmental issues most important to Daikin. We have an in-house environmental newsletter that introduces actions that each company division are taking. The intranet and Daikin newsletter also provide the useful tips to reduce the environmental impact at home such as how to save electricity and water usage.
To coincide with World Environment Day on June 5, since fiscal 2008, Daikin divisions in Japan have conducted a range of environmental activities at the company and employees' homes.
Eco-action in fiscal 2011, included saving workplace electricity in every way possible and turning off all lights and air conditioning before leaving the company at the end of the day.
