Together we are part of a sustainable future: announcing the Daikin 2020 VRV Summit

Press Release, October 2019

At the Daikin 2020 VRV Summit next February, Daikin will reveal the next stages in its goal to achieve net zero CO2 emissions across the company’s business activities, products and services by 2050.  

Vienna, October 2019 – More than 500 guests will be invited to the event in Copenhagen, Europe’s most sustainable capital. Here they will be able to hear first-hand about the new products and services that are set to enable Daikin and its business partners to lead the market to a sustainable HVAC-R future.

Circular economy

Daikin’s award-winning “Certified Reclaimed Refrigerant Allocation” program is growing rapidly. After successfully initiating active participation of its specialised installers’ network in reclaiming refrigerants, Daikin will outline the next steps in making the reuse of refrigerant even easier. This is one of the actions to achieve or even surpass the f-gas regulation phase down targets, as reclaimed refrigerant is not part of the phase-down quota.

Innovation – The next generation VRV 5

Innovation is key to the journey towards future sustainability. Recognised for setting the standard in the HVAC-R market, Daikin has achieved many world firsts including its Variable Refrigerant Temperature capability and for offering the most extended R-32 portfolio for split, Sky Air, Daikin Altherma and VRV systems. The next generation VRV 5 S-series will be unveiled to guests at the summit.

Benefitting from a completely new and optimised low height platform, this new VRV will offer like-for-like installation flexibility as the R-410A version, together with highly improved serviceability and easier handling.


Complementing the digital technologies and environmentally friendly plans will be a range of locally sourced and prepared foods, creating a truly sustainable European VRV summit, which offers a unique opportunity for people to exchange ideas and bring themselves up to date with the innovations that will help shape our future.
