JAPAN: Daikin has joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) which conducts discussions, research, and advocacy on sustainability issues.

Established in 1995 and headquartered in Geneva, the WBCSD provides a platform for member companies where they discuss, conduct research and compile opinions for advocacy while cooperating with governments, NGOs, and international organisations.

Today, there are over 200 member companies from a wide range of sectors around the world, with combined sales of $8.5 trillion and over 19 million employees.
