At Daikin, we strive to meet the world's needs for air solutions by providing clean and comfortable air environments while at the same time contributing innovations to solving global environmental problems. From innovating to develop state-of-the-art technologies that we expect will lessen our industry's environmental footprint to formulating our Environmental Vision 2050, we are committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions to net zero.
Daikin aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 by reducing greenhouse gas emissions throughout the product lifecycle. We set the target in our strategic management plan, Fusion 25, to reduce our company’s net CO2 emissions by 30% or more in 2025 and 50% or more by 2030, compared with emissions without measures with the base year set at 2019.
Reducing the climate impact of refrigerants is central to our environmental policies. We are constantly evaluating refrigerant choices and seeking diversity in our refrigerants in order to select the most appropriate one for each application.
This project is not simply a matter of planting trees. Measures are also being implemented for sustainable agricultural support as a source of revenue that replaces activities leading to the destruction of the forests; environmental education for the local communities; management of illegal lumbering and poaching; and consensus building and training for all of these.
