Air conditioners are vital to the lives of many people around the world, but they consume large amounts of energy during operation, and fluorocarbons used as refrigerants significantly influence climate change.
In addition to reducing Group-wide greenhouse gas emissions during development and production by 70% compared to fiscal 2005, we will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 60 million tons-CO2 by promoting environment-conscious products using inverter technologies and low environmental impact refrigerants throughout the world.
We measure our contribution to greenhouse gas emission reductions based on the percentage of sales volume of environmentally conscious products and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions during development and production.
