The importance of green buildings
Energy efficient building solutions may seem costlier upfront, but choosing the sustainable option saves you money in the long run. By investing in a BREEAM, LEED, WELL or other green building certification, you can reduce your operational costs, take advantage of renewable resources, stay ahead of legislation and increase the market value of your building.
Daikin is your green partner
With our team of Accredited Professionals (APs), we are ready to guide you in selecting the right equipment to achieve your green building objectives within budget. Whether it be sustainable design or commissioning, Daikin is there with you every step of the way to help you achieve a high certification score to maximise your green building programme.
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 BREEAM/LEED Assessment Sheet
Created by our team of experts, the Daikin BREEAM/LEED Assessment Sheet helps you increase your building’s rating. You save time by sending this sheet directly to assessors when applying for BREEAM or LEED credits.
The Efficient Daikin Total Solution
Many buildings typically operate separate systems for heating, cooling, refrigeration, ventilation and hot water. As a result, a large amount of energy is wasted. We offer a more efficient alternative with the Daikin Total Solution. The Daikin Total Solution manages up to 70% of a building’s energy consumption to deliver maximum energy efficiency at minimal operating costs and to reduce CO2 emissions. With the Daikin Total Solution, you can achieve 30% of the total BREAAM New Construction Plan (2016) score.
Variable Refrigerant Volume (VRV) and inverter technology
BREEAM, LEED and Daikin all view energy efficiency as a top priority when developing your green project. The best investment you can choose is Daikin’s Variable Refrigerant Volume for VRV systems, because it allows you to adjust your refrigerant temperature to reflect actual conditions and create optimal seasonal efficiency at all times. Daikin’s VRV, Chiller and refrigeration heat recovery units all use inverter technology to provide the highest BREEAM LEED and WELL scores for energy efficient calculations.
The Intelligent Network
To drastically reduce your building’s energy consumption, the operation of an air conditioner needs to be managed and monitored 24/7. Daikin’s Intelligent Network (i-Net) is a web-based data and analytics tool which allows you to focus on your core business and leave the HVAC-R management to us. With Daikin i-Net, we continuously fine tune your system without intervention on your side.

BES 6001 certification
Daikin's factories in Belgium and the Czech Republic, and its VRV, Sky Air, Daikin Altherma, Split and Chiller systems are all BES 6001 certified. This certification ensures socially, economically and environmentally responsible sourcing throughout the supply chain. BES 6001 is officially recognised by BREAAM, and incorporating BES 6001 certified products in your building significantly increases your BREEAM rating.
