To all those who suffered from the earthquake in the Tohoku region of Japan on March 11, 2011, we would like to express our deepest sympathy and offer our prayers for the swift recovery of the disaster area.
In support of all of those affected by the earthquake, the Daikin Group wishes to donate 100 million yen in monetary aid and approximately 200 million yen in material (600 commercial use air purifiers and 500 far-infrared electric heaters) for a total contribution amount equivalent to something over 300 million yen. Also, we intend to solicit donations from all of the employees of the Daikin Group for contribution to the disaster relief efforts.
On March 12, 2011, Daikin established an Emergency Response Headquarters headed by Chairman and CEO Noriyuki Inoue. On this occasion of unprecedented devastation, the Daikin Group is working together in support of relief efforts for the disaster areas with priority placed on the preservation of life, safety, and tranquility.
