Daikin joins forces with Greater Manchester Combined Authority to ramp up decarbonisation

GMCA-Daikin MoU
L-R Andy Burnham and Masatsugu Minaka

Daikin has signed an agreement with Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) in a first-of-its-kind public and private joint approach to decarbonisation.    

The agreement was signed by Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester and Masatsugu Minaka, Chairman of the Board of Daikin Europe N.V. and Senior Executive Officer of Daikin Industries Ltd. at the Mayor’s office in Manchester at the start of February.  

The partnership will provide GMCA with a dynamic purchasing framework to deliver Daikin air to water heat pumps for social housing across the city by 2025, making the procurement process more straightforward and cost effective.  

The installation of Daikin’s heat pumps will be a key part of GMCA’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, which will see up to a thousand heat pumps delivered to social housing across Greater Manchester.
