Green Heart Factories

Certifying Environmentally Conscious Plants Through an In-House Standard

The Daikin Group has an in-house standard for evaluating and certifying environmentally conscious plants for their environmental and social performance. Plants scoring at least 85 points out of 100 are certified as Green Heart Factories, while those scoring at least 95 points are certified as Super Green Heart Factories.

As of the end of fiscal 2016, three bases in Japan and seven bases overseas had been certified as Super Green Heart Factories. This brings the total of Green Heart Factories to five bases in Japan and 26 bases overseas.


Green Heart Offices

"Green Heart Office" Initiative

Daikin began the “Green Heart Office” initiative in fiscal 2011 to improve environmental consciousness at non-production bases. Awareness raising activities have included an environmental poster design contest aimed at promoting Green Heart Offices, with the winning entry being put up in Daikin offices for everyone to see.

With these efforts gradually spreading through the Daikin Group, in fiscal 2014 we created a Green Heart Office checklist. The checklist includes a graph with the items “paper,” “garbage,” and “electricity” on the vertical axis, and the items “awareness” and “contribution” on the horizontal axis.

In addition, we created the three ranks of Gold Class, Silver Class, and Bronze Class for each office zone. This allows us to make comparative assessments among bases. We have set a target of achieving Gold Class for major non-production bases by 2020, and in fiscal 2016 all major bases achieved Bronze Class. In fiscal 2017, we will continue efforts to achieve at least Bronze Class for all bases and increase the number of bases achieving Silver Class or Gold Class.
