Based on this environmental vision, we set targets and implement measures under our Fusion strategic management plans with the goal of contributing to a sustainable society by taking on the world's problems through our business. In addition, we have formulated CSR Action Plan 2020 that sets out targets for 2020 for each of Daikin's nine CSR themes. Under this plan, the entire Daikin Group is now working to achieve these targets.
