Respect for Human Rights

Why is it Important?

A manufacturer doing business worldwide can negatively impact human rights in numerous ways; for example, by polluting the air and waterways with its factories and therefore, harming the health of humans and destroying natural ecosystems, or by working with suppliers who employ child labor or forced labor.

Multinational companies must therefore abide by global standards, such as the United Nations’ “Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights,” in protecting and respecting human rights throughout the entire value chain.


Based on the laws and regulations of each country and region, the Daikin Group shows respect for basic human rights in accordance with international norms.

The Daikin Group takes part in the United Nations Global Compact for aligning operations to universally accepted principles on issues such as human rights and labor standards. Our Group Conduct Guidelines state our policies for respect for individual human rights, diverse values, and ways of looking at work, and our policy of no child labor or forced labor.
