The Daikin Group strives to build a relationship of trust with its suppliers. Through a synergistic relationship, both sides seek to meet each other's expectations for the sake of mutual growth and progress. To achieve this, we do our utmost to conduct fair and open dealings, and we constantly communicate with suppliers to ensure ever-improved quality and safety.
In choosing our suppliers, we have an open-door policy, based on our Purchasing Policy, in which potential business partners, whatever their nationality, can view our requirements for quality, cost, and delivery on our website before submitting a bid.
We take every opportunity for communicating with suppliers so that we can develop a relationship of mutual understanding and trust.
In order to grow and evolve with suppliers, we help them build management systems offering better product quality and safety, hold meetings jointly with suppliers where both sides can solve key problems, and offer training for employees of distributors.
Daikin's Green Procurement Guidelines went into effect in fiscal 2000 to help our suppliers procure green parts and materials. These guidelines are consulted during the procurement stage in Japan, China and Southeast Asia, and the EU.
