Editorial Policy

Sustainability Report 2022 and Sustainability (website) cover the basic philosophy of the Daikin Group with regards to sustainable growth, achievements in fiscal 2021, and plans for the future.
Daikin has identified key sustainability themes, among them response to climate change, after analyzing risks and opportunities based on the business characteristics of its operations, impacts of its business activities and market forecasts. We have also reviewed our indicators and targets on sustainability based on the Fusion 25 Strategic Management Plan formulated in 2021.
This report contains Daikin’s basic approach to sustainable growth, fiscal 2021 achievements, and future plans following the five Value Provision themes (environment, value of air, customer satisfaction, human resources, and co-creation) and the five Foundational themes (corporate governance, respect for human rights, supply chain management, stakeholder engagement, and local communities). It was designed to convey this information to stakeholders in an easy-to-understand manner.
