Daikin supports Global Cooling Pledge

Daikin has announced its support for the Global Cooling Pledge launched at COP28 – an international initiative aimed at addressing the challenges associated with cooling systems and their impact on the environment and society. It involves commitments from participating countries to prioritise sustainable cooling practices to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, while assuring access to cooling for all. At COP28, it was agreed to triple the world’s renewable energy capacity and double the rate of improvement in energy efficiency by 2030. In addition, the agreement on the pledge, which supports the targets set out by COP28, is one of the key outcomes of the conference.

Spearheaded by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP)-led Cool Coalition and the United Arab Emirates’ presidency of COP28, the Global Cooling Pledge equally calls on corporations to enhance its viability. Support of private companies, financial institutions, and many other societal stakeholders will be required to help governments achieve their sustainable cooling goals.

Katsuyuki Sawai, senior executive officer, CSR, global environment, and external relations for Daikin, said: “As a leading air conditioning company with global operations, Daikin has led the industry in promoting the use of high-efficiency inverter air conditioners and the low-GWP refrigerant R32 in cooperation with international organisations and other countries. These efforts are in line with the direction of the Global Cooling Pledge, and we will continue to expand these initiatives around the world to help achieve the goals of the pledge.”
