The UK has committed to reducing F-Gas emissions by 68% between 2015 and 2030. More reductions will be required to reduce emissions to near zero by 2050. And Daikin is committed to playing its part.

Our climate is facing its greatest ever challenge. Global average temperatures are rising. Human activity has already led to global warming of 1°C from pre-industrial levels.

If we continued with ‘business as usual’, temperatures were predicted to rise 4 to 5°C by the end of the century. The impact could put 80% of the world’s population at risk of flooding and bring the very real risks of widespread biodiversity loss, crop failure and catastrophic rises in sea levels.

Current policies have already reduced the expected rate of warming to 3°C by the end of the century. But the aim is to reduce warming to below 1.5°C, as this will significantly reduce climate risks.

To achieve this, the UK’s Committee on Climate Change has recommended a new target of Net Zero Greenhouse Gases by 2050.

The energy, construction and HVAC industries have a huge role to play in this. We must quadruple the supply of low carbon electricity. Efficiency improvements to buildings will demand higher standards to deliver crucial energy savings and emissions reductions. The transition to low carbon heating is vital. We must also move away to a greater extent from F-gases.

Tomorrow is ambitious Daikin’s environmental vision

Our vision is to provide safe and healthy air environments while striving to make our business activities carbon neutral by 2050.

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 is about moving away from the ‘take, make, dispose’ approach and away from the consumption of finite resources to a future in which we minimise impact on the world around us.

Together we can be part of the climate solution.
