As a leading company in HVAC-R systems, Daikin is the best partner for your green building projects.
The importance of green buildings
Energy efficient building solutions may seem more costly upfront, but choosing the sustainable option saves you money in the long run. By investing in a green solution, you reduce your operational costs and take advantage of renewable resources. Stay ahead of legislation and increase the market value of your building.
Your green partner
Our team of Accredited Professionals (APs) are ready to guide you in selecting the right equipment to achieve your green building objectives within budget. Whether it be BREEAM or LEED certification, sustainable design or commissioning, Daikin is there with you every step of the way to help you maximise your green building programme.
Our green building projects
We specialise in helping builders achieve BREEAM Excellent, LEED Gold, NZEB and similar certificates. Explore some of the green building projects that we've worked on.
BREEAM Very Good
VRV is used as the single source for heating and cooling. Intelligent Touch Manager is used for central control and energy consumption management.
BREEAM design phase: Excellent

Increase your BREEAM rating with Daikin
Founded in 1990, BREEAM assists building owners, architects and designers in choosing sustainable solutions that are long term and cost effective. Using independent and licensed assessors, BREEAM evaluates energy efficiency and water use, health and well-being, pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes, and gives buildings a rating based on these scientific evaluations on a scale from "Pass," "Good," "Very good," to "Excellent" and "Outstanding." By creating these targets ahead of regulatory requirements, BREEAM encourages greater sustainability and innovation.
Daikin's factories in Belgium and the Czech Republic, and its VRV, Sky Air, Daikin Altherma, Split and Chiller systems are all BES 6001 certified. This certification ensures socially, economically and environmentally responsible sourcing throughout the supply chain. BES 6001 is officially recognised by BREAAM, and incorporating BES 6001 certified products in your building significantly increases your BREEAM rating.
The Daikin Total Solution
Many buildings typically operate separate systems for heating, cooling, refrigeration, ventilation and hot water. As a result, a large amount of energy is wasted. We offer a more efficient alternative with the Daikin Total Solution. The Daikin Total Solution manages up to 70% of a building’s energy consumption to deliver maximum energy efficiency at minimal operating costs and to reduce CO2 emissions.
Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) and inverter technology
BREEAM, LEED and Daikin all view energy efficiency as a top priority when developing your green project. The best investment you can choose is Daikin's Variable Refrigerant Volume for VRV systems, because it allows you to adjust your refrigerant temperature to reflect actual conditions; creating optimal seasonal efficiency at all times. Daikin’s VRV, Chiller, and refrigeration heat recovery units all use inverter technology to provide the highest BREEAM and LEED scores for energy efficient calculations.
The Intelligent Network
To drastically reduce your building's energy consumption, the operation of an air conditioner needs to be managed and monitored 24/7. Daikin’s Intelligent Network (i-Net) is a web-based data and analytics tool which allows you to focus on your core business and leave the HVAC-R management to us. Our Daikin i-Net continuously fine tunes your system’s operation without intervention on your side.
