Response to Climate Change

Basic Policy

Air conditioners consume large amounts of electricity, and the fluorocarbons they use as refrigerants deplete the ozone layer and contribute to global warming. Particularly in the rapidly developing economies of emerging countries, growing demand for air conditioners is expected to have an increasingly severe effect on climate change.

The Daikin Group is focusing on alleviating the effect that products have on climate change through the dissemination of refrigerants with low global warming impact and energy-efficient technologies, and through the provision of energy-efficient solutions that combine air conditioners, their peripherals, and the buildings in which they operate.

In addition, we strive to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases during production and transportation, and we recover, recycle, and destroy fluorocarbons during all stages from production to final product disposal.
