Daikin Industries, received the highest rank of Platinum Certification in the LEED for New Construction (LEED-NC) rating system for the Technology and Innovation Center (hereinafter referred to as “TIC”).

Developed and managed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is a green building certification system that has expanded globally as an evaluation system for environmentally- responsible buildings and area development. The TIC is a building structure that combines Daikin technologies for achieving a zero energy building (ZEB). Here new energy-saving technologies are constantly being tested and verified with the building serving as a solution model for sustainability. In receiving this certification, the company earned high praise for its efforts for the TIC overall as well as for energy savings centered on Daikin air conditioning technologies, the comfort of the indoor environment, and the planning involved for energy measurement and data collection.
