A. Daikin will continue to innovate to achieve a sustainable refrigerant and equipment lifecycle.
In addition to refrigerant selection, how a refrigerant is managed through its lifecycle, including recovery and reclamation, is also very important. And while we strongly support the Kigali amendment, and the effort to phase down HFCs in CO2 equivalent, GWP is not the only measure for evaluating refrigerants, even within the Kigali framework. A comprehensive approach, including leakage prevention, recovery, reclamation and destruction is required. We will also continue to improve the energy efficiency of each of our products to reduce their overall environmental footprint.
These measures will be quite effective for achievement of HFCs phasedown in CO2 equivalent such as the Kigali Amendment.
Daikin commits to utilizing and providing refrigerants that meet diverse needs and aims to achieve an environmentally conscious refrigerant lifecycle by reclamation and recycling. This includes:
Daikin continues to improve the energy efficiency of equipment and systems, and to select optimal refrigerants that meet various needs. This includes:
Daikin works with related stakeholders to help achieve a self sustainable approach by focusing on refrigerant leakage prevention and refrigerant recovery, which includes:
