"CSR Report 2009" for the Daikin Group

"CSR Report 2009"

Daikin Industries, Ltd. has issued its "CSR Report 2009" summarizing CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities in the Daikin Group from April 2008 to March 2009. Both the English version and Chinese version will be posted on the website in a PDF file format in September.

The report serves to inform various stakeholders regarding CSR within the Daikin Group and deepen their understanding of activities undertaken by Daikin to achieve it.

The 2009 CSR Report is composed of features centering on "Contribution towards the Preservation of the Environment" and "Cultivation of Human Resources." In regards to the environment, the 2009 Report chronicles Daikin efforts for the prevention of global warming through promotion of widespread use of heat pump type heating systems and hot water heaters as one pillar in the Daikin environmental strategy. With regards to human resources, we report on the nurturing of human resources by emphasizing the engendering of leadership and ensuring that Daikin personnel thoroughly understand our management philosophy.

In FUSION 10, the Daikin strategic management plan that establishes fiscal year targets for 2010, we set out targets for actual performance of main environmental activities and were able to reduce greenhouse gases emitted within the overall Group during production by 67% compared to fiscal year 2005. This enabled us to obtain our goal of "Halving Greenhouse Gas Emissions Compared to 2005" ahead of time.
