The Daikin Group is developing products with minimal environmental impact by raising energy efficiency, switching to refrigerants with the least possible burden on the environment, and making products easier to recycle. We are also striving to reduce the impact that chemicals have on human health and the environment.
We assess products starting from the planning and design stages to ensure that they are energy efficient and recyclable. We conduct quantitative environmental assessments for each product life cycle so that we can make the next product release less of an impact on the environment.
The Daikin Group aims to provide more highly energy efficient inverter air conditioners worldwide and thus reduce the amount of CO2 emissions from energy consumption during product use.
The Daikin Group is developing space and hot water heaters using highly energy efficient heat-pump technology. In heat-pump technology for air conditioning, heat is drawn from the air and transferred for use as cooling or heating. Compared to space or water heating methods that burn fossil fuels directly, it produces less than one-half the CO2.
Room air conditioners, large commercial air conditioners, fluorochemical products, and oil hydraulic products—Daikin develops environmentally conscious products so it can offer complete packages for helping customers reduce their overall CO2 emissions.
Fluorine mainly bonds with carbon atoms to become compounds that are highly stable and have useful functions such as the ability to resist heat and repel chemicals.
Daikin uses the unique characteristics of fluorine to bring consumers a range of products that help protect the environment.
We can offer the most adequate refrigerant for each case, we are conducting R&D that will achieve practical use of everything from natural refrigerants to HFC fluorocarbons, which have a relatively low global warming potential.
The Daikin Group strives to use resources as effectively as possible by carrying out the 3Rs—reducing, reusing, and recycling—along with repairing under its 3R & Repair initiative.
We develop products that are smaller and lighter, and that use materials and designs that are easy to separate and recycle.
