Keeping commercial projects sustainable, on track and always on target. 

The UK has committed to reducing F-gas emissions by 68% between 2015 and 2030. And at Daikin, we're actively committed to playing our part.

Achieving Planet Mark certification, attained by reporting on our carbon footprint and successfully engaging our stakeholders, is our dedication to minimising our environmental impact. 

Humanity is facing its greatest ever challenge

Climate change has become a global emergency. Human activity has already caused global temperatures to rise by 1°C from pre-industrial levels. 

If we had continued with ‘business as usual’ we would risk catastrophic crop failures, famine and flooding affecting 80% of people across the world.

Currently, the expected rate of warming is 3°C by the end of the century. But we need to reduce that figure to below 1.5°C, as this will significantly reduce climate risks.

To achieve this target, the UK Government has committed to achieving Net Zero Greenhouse Gases by 2050. 

And the energy, construction and HVAC industries have a huge role to play. We must quadruple the UK’s supply of low carbon electricity. Improve building efficiencies to significantly higher standards, delivering crucial energy savings and reducing emissions. And transition to low carbon heating solutions.

We must also continue championing more sustainable refrigerants. 

The UK has committed to reducing F-gas emissions by 68% between 2015 and 2030. And at Daikin, we're actively committed to playing our part.


From lower GWP and recycled refrigerants to improving operational efficiency, Daikin is playing a key part in the decarbonisation of commercial buildings through our Climate360 programme. 

We support landlords, tenants and contractors to stay on target with their own Net Zero ambitions and responsibilities, providing all the evidence they need to meet expectations and changing industry demands. 

We do this by helping them understand their embodied carbon and providing calculations based on CIBSE’s recommended TM65 methodology – with Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) coming soon. 

Our vision is to provide safe and healthy air environments while working to make all Daikin factories carbon neutral by 2030.

We will do this by:

  • Promoting energy-efficient technologies and energy management solutions.
  • Adopting refrigerants such as R32 with lower global warming potential; developing next generation refrigerants; and recovering and reclaiming refrigerants in use.
  • Reducing the environmental impact of materials throughout the entire life cycle of our products – from procurement and manufacture to recovery and reclaiming.
  • As a general principle, we will support the development of a circular economy, which aims to design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use and regenerate natural systems.
  • It’s about moving away from the ‘take, make, dispose’ approach and away from the consumption of finite resources – working towards a future in which we minimise impact on the world around us.

Together we can be part of the climate solution.
