Daikin’s Aims for Value Creation

Provide new value that makes people and space healthier and more comfortable while at the same time reducing environmental impact.

It is common knowledge that air conditioners consume large amounts of electricity and therefore have a huge environmental impact, particularly with regards to climate change. At the same time, the dissemination of air conditioners has spurred a revolution in labor and lifestyles in hot regions while contributing to economic growth and a better quality of life for the people there. The Daikin Group brings new value to people by helping create healthy, comfortable spaces in an energy efficient manner.
