At Daikin, we are a company that prioritizes sustainability in our products and services. In this regard, we attach great importance to launching projects that create awareness about the climate crisis and strive to reach people from all walks of life in our efforts. For example, we launched the 'Clean Air Ambassadors' project to increase awareness about climate and the environment from a young age. Additionally, we aim to raise awareness among people of all ages and backgrounds through initiatives like climate laboratories in vocational schools and gatherings like the 'Expert Days,' where the industry comes together for knowledge exchange. We have also sponsored Prof. Dr. Tamer Aker's MaratHOME project, which aims to draw attention to the negative effects of the climate crisis. Now, with our 'A Livable Future with Daikin' video contest, we aim to create new awareness about global climate change."
