Daikin's actions toward a sustainable society

Based on Our Group Philosophy, which is the unifying force for our management, we create and implement proposals for Group action in five-year cycles under our Fusion strategic management plans. In fiscal 2018, we formulated Daikin Environmental Vision 2050 in order to contribute to solving increasingly serious global environmental problems over the long term. Based on this environmental vision, we set targets and implement measures under our Fusion strategic management plans with the goal of contributing to a sustainable society by taking on the world's problems through our business. In addition, we have formulated CSR Action Plan 2020 that sets out targets for 2020 for each of Daikin's nine CSR themes. Under this plan, the entire Daikin Group worked to achieve these targets.
