Commercialize Only Products that Meet 13 Assessment Criteria

Besides factors like performance and usability, Daikin stresses environmental performance in product development, and incorporates product assessment in the planning and design stages for new products. Product assessment consists of 13 assessment items that we strictly adhere to in developing products.

We also assess global warming impact of air conditioners using the life cycle assessment (LCA) method, which allows us to determine the environmental impact at each stage of a product's life cycle. Products only make it to market after we have assessed them against their predecessor products to confirm they exert less environmental impact.

Product Assessment Items

  1. Weight reduction of products
  2. Use of recycled materials and parts
  3. Packaging
  4. Reduction in environmental impact in the manufacturing process
  5. Energy and resource conservation in use
  6. Product life extension
  7. Ease of delivery/collecting/transporting
  8. Raise possibility of reuse of resources
  9. Ease of disassembly and separation of materials by hand
  10. Ease of shredding/classifying for recycling
  11. Environmental conservation capabilities
  12. Disclosure of information
  13. LCA

Fluoride Materials Reduce Environmental Impact in Various Applications

With fluoride materials having superb heat and chemical resistance, we are conducting R&D into their use as material for semi-conductors and the next generation automobile field. In addition, as fluoride materials also contribute to increased capacity of lithium-ion batteries, they are used for electrode binding and gasket. We will continue to expand their use in renewable energy, new energy, and energy-saving applications.
