The company has recently signed the Climate-Responsible Companies Pledge, an initiative led by the UAE Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE). This step aligns with Daikin’s Environmental Vision 2050 and supports the UAE’s strategic goals of achieving Net Zero by 2050 and advancing its Clean Energy Strategy.

This significant step solidifies Daikin’s alignment with the UAE’s international climate commitments, including the Paris Agreement, and bolsters the UAE Net Zero by 2050 Strategic Initiative.”
