Sustainability Report

Editorial Policy

Editorial Policy

This report covers the basic philosophy of the Daikin Group with regards to sustainable growth, achievements in fiscal 2017, and plans for the future.

Information that, due to space limitations, could not fit into the Sustainability Report 2018 (printed version) released in July 2018 is included on this website.

Printed Version

In this Sustainability Report, we focus on the most important information from among the Daikin Group's strategies toward a sustainable society; the four key themes of CSR for Value Provision, which are environment, new value creation, customer satisfaction, and human resources; and Fundamental CSR, which forms the basis of these themes.

Under Key Activities, we report on activities we are focusing on in each of our four key CSR themes.


This website comprises detailed data and case studies and is divided into CSR and Strategy, which explains the policy, strategies, and plans of the Daikin Group's CSR; and nine CSR themes that the Daikin Group prioritizes (four themes of CSR for Value Provision, which are environment, new value creation, customer satisfaction, and human resources; and five themes of Fundamental CSR, which are corporate governance, respect for human rights, supply chain management, stakeholder engagement, and communities).

Third-Party Verification

To ensure reliability of the content of this report, Daikin had a third-party verification conducted for data on greenhouse gas emissions, water use, waste water, waste emissions, and chemical substances emissions.

Reference Guidelines

This report was created with reference to the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards 2016 released by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

Guideline comparison tables are on our website. Our CSR activities are conducted in line with ISO 26000.

Since 2008, the Daikin Group has been taking part in the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative for companies committed to operating based on 10 universally accepted principles in areas including human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. Daikin also issues this CSR Report as an annual Communication on Progress (COP) to the United Nations, a public disclosure on progress made in implementing the 10 principles of the Global Compact.


In reporting on fiscal 2017 CSR activities, data was carefully reviewed and was revised in cases where discrepancies occurred between actual fiscal 2017 results and information reported for fiscal 2016. Also, because figures are rounded off, totals may not equal the sum of individual figures.
