ISTANBUL (TR) - Daikin, the pioneer of the air conditioning sector, aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. Explaining its activities in this context, Daikin Turkey has published its first ‘Sustainability Report'. Accordingly, Daikin has prevented damage to the ozone layer while increasing efficiency with energy-efficient inverter technology and R-32, a refrigerant with a lower global warming potential, in its products. The company, which provided a cost advantage of 2 million euros with the products it received from Turkey through the indigenization project, reduced transportation costs and fuel consumption and reduced carbon emissions. with the GES project commissioned in July 2020, it obtained the energy of its factory in Hendek from here and reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 63 percent. Daikin, which strictly follows the water consumption, has taken the necessary measures to save 14,500 cubic meters of water. With various applications, it also saved 70 percent on lighting and 30 percent on natural gas. it recovered 513 tons of waste. The company, which attaches great importance to R & D, has allocated a budget of TL 22 million for this department. dec. 

According to the Regulation on Fluorinated Greenhouse Gases prepared by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and determining the management of F-Gases, all Daikin service personnel received an F-Gas Certificate. the company, which will plant 1 million trees by 2050, will establish Daikin forests. Hasan Önder, CEO of Daikin Turkey, said, "We have set a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050. we aim to capture 50 percent of this by 2030. We hope that other companies will take this goal as an example." said. 

While Turkey is taking steps to implement the Paris Climate Agreement, companies are focusing on their pioneering practices in this regard. Daikin Turkey, which has developed all its production and management processes on sustainability policies, has published its work in this direction with a report. Announced by the firm-page 122 ‘Sustainability Report, supply chain logistics, R & D center from the environmental vision, operational efficiency, climate change and energy policy, with data from all processes of Human Resources Management from water and waste management is described.

These strategies are summarized as “becoming an air conditioning brand and becoming a carbon neutral company that leads the solutions of global environmental problems with its products and services”. 

We will be an example for companies

Daikin Turkey CEO Hasan Önder said that in recent years, with the rise of global temperatures in parallel with climate change, air conditioning products have become an important part of the infrastructure supporting societies. Stating that Daikin's biggest goal is sustainability, Önder said, “As Daikin, we have collected our fight against climate change in three main topics. We can summarize them as adding value to cities, the world and people. We will turn our global goals into actions in these main topics. As a first step, we have prepared our Daikin Turkey Sustainability Report, which we have published for the first time. In accordance with Daikin's global philosophy, we will implement these studies under these headings within the framework of our next five-year plans." said. Stating that they have set a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, Önder said, “We aim to achieve 50 percent of this by 2030., ” he said. 

he localized 36 tracks

According to the information shared by Daikin Jul in its first sustainability report, Daikin Turkey, which has internalized Daikin Global's sustainability goals, has implemented 36 different parts of the localization project sourced from abroad for 2020, providing a cost advantage of 2 million euros. In this context, the material supply times were reduced from 12 weeks to 4 weeks and the stock levels were reduced from 4 weeks to 1 week. jul. With the reduction of transportation costs and road distance, fuel consumption also fell, which contributed to the reduction of carbon emissions. Also, with the ‘Direct Loading’ project shared in the report, the transfer costs within the group companies were reduced thanks to the delivery of urgent products by truck and non-urgent products by ship. 

it has saved 15 thousand 400 cubic meters of water

setting concrete environmental targets over 5-year periods, Daikin Global aims to reduce waste water consumption, carbon dioxide emissions and volatile organic carbon by 15 percent by 2030. In this context, 15 thousand 400 cubic meters of water were saved annually by taking reverse osmosis wastewater into the raw water tank and using it again at Daikin Turkey Trench Production Plant, which received the “Green-Hearted Factory” certificate for the first time in 2015. 450-watt halogen fixtures were replaced with 130-watt LED fixtures, saving 70 percent on lighting. By switching to a dual-stage and time-adjustable operating system for radiant heaters, 30 percent of natural gas savings were achieved. With the roof solar power plant (GES) project built at the production facility, 90 percent of the facility's electricity needs were met from renewable electricity generation. Thus, 6 thousand 500 MWh of electricity was saved annually and about 4 thousand 29 tons of carbon dioxide was reduced.  In the production of air conditioners, R410A gas with a global warming potential (“GWP”) value of 2.088 was switched to R-32 gas, which is one-third of this value (GWP 675). 10 tons of waste per month was prevented by using reusable packaging instead of cardboard packages. Within the scope of the social responsibility project, reusable cloth bags were distributed and the use of plastic and paper bags was prevented. 

513 tons of waste were recovered 

Daikin Turkey, which is sensitive about Zero Waste, prevented environmental pollution caused by product packaging with the membership of the ÇEVKO Foundation. A total of 513 tons of waste, including 178 tons of plastic and 335 tons of cardboard packaging waste from products released domestically, were collected on the market and recycled. In the report, which stated that the recycling and recycling of waste generated by production in Daikin Turkey is provided through licensed companies, it was emphasized that 1,658 tons of metal and 1,783 tons of packaging waste were sent to recycling through licensed companies in 2020. 51 tons of paper and 82 tons of hazardous waste were used for energy recovery through licensed companies. 

Increased efficiency with R-32 refrigerant
