Developing and Promoting Products and Services That Reduce Environmental Impact

Response to Climate Change


The Daikin Group is working in numerous areas to reduce environmental impact, such as by improving the energy efficiency and environmental performance of products and by converting to refrigerants that are safer and that have a lower global warming potential.

Furthermore, by promoting environmentally conscious products and services all over the world, we will contribute to solving environmental and energy problems while providing a healthy and comfortable air environment.

Contributing to Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions through the Promotion of Environmentally Conscious Products

Air conditioners, our main products, emit a particularly massive amount of CO2 when used, thus we are focusing efforts on the global promotion of energy-efficient air conditioners using inverter technologies and air conditioners using low environmental impact refrigerants. Having set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 60 million tons-CO2 in fiscal 2020, in fiscal 2017 we estimate that we contributed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 54 million tons-CO2.

Environmentally Conscious Product Sales Ratio

In order to mitigate the global warming impact of its air conditioners, the Daikin Group defines its environmentally conscious products as Super Green Products and Green Products, developing and spreading the use of these products.

In fiscal 2017, environmentally conscious products accounted for 83% of residential air conditioner sales.
