Certifying Environmentally Conscious Plants Based on In-House Standards

Since fiscal 2005, Daikin has utilized in-house standards for evaluating and certifying environmentally conscious plants for their environmental and social performance. Certification is conducted once every two years.

In fiscal 2017, we revised these standards to elevate these efforts to a higher level. In addition to the standards used up to now focused on whether environmental activities are being conducted organization-wide, including mechanisms for the participation of all employees, we established a four-stage certification ranking system consisting of platinum, gold, silver and bronze categories in order to evaluate the initiatives of each business site.

As of the end of fiscal 2020, 39 bases in Japan and overseas had been certified as gold (seven bases), silver (16 bases) and bronze (16 bases).

Green Heart Offices

"Green Heart Office" Initiative

Daikin began the "Green Heart Office" initiative in fiscal 2011 to promote environmental activities at non-production bases such as offices. In fiscal 2014 we created a three-stage ranking comprising gold, silver and bronze to evaluate the level of initiatives being undertaken by each base based on "reduce resource usage" and "awareness and contribution."

In fiscal 2020, seven bases were Gold Class and two bases were Silver Class. In order to enhance environmental awareness among employees, we conducted virtual information sessions on the sustainability report targeting non-production bases, where over 1,000 participants attended. We will continue our efforts in working toward increasing the number of Gold Class bases.
