As a green building expert, Daikin’s Acreddited Professionals (AP’s) offer advice and the solutions to reach the sustainable performance of your building.
What is BREEAM, LEED and WELL?
BREEAM, LEED and WELL are the three most widely used green bulding rating systems in the world. They provide a framework to assist building owners, architects and designers in choosing sustainable solutions that are long term and cost effective.
How do they work?
Using independent and licensed assessors, they evaluate energy efficiency and water use, health and well-being, pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes, and give buildings a rating based on these scientific evaluations in categories based on the number of points achieved.
By creating these targets ahead of regulatory requirements, this encourages greater sustainability and innovation in the building industry.
Daikin is your green partner
As every building is unique, it requires a different solution to match its unique properties. It is essential to have an HVAC-R partner like Daikin, with knowledge and portfolio to achieve your green objectives while staying within budget.
Our HVAC-R total solutions increase the environmental value of buildings and enhance the working environment of tenants. Integration of Daikin technologies will therefore contribute to the overall sustainability level of the building and enable you to reach the highest levels in green building certification.
