UK: This year’s World Refrigeration Day on June 26 will take the theme Cooling Matters in an effort to raise public awareness of the essential benefits of refrigeration technologies.
Speaking at a side session during the AHR Expo in Las Vegas, World Refrigeration Day founder Steve Gill said: “Our objective is to make the public aware of cooling’s essential benefits, how cooling impacts daily life, and how technology choices foster environmental well-being of future generations.”
According to the secretariat, despite policies, standards and codes related to the refrigeration and air conditioning industry, there is still significant lack of public understanding of cooling’s importance even though issues like refrigerant transition, emissions reduction, and maximising energy efficiency have been addressed for decades by governments due to global policies and binding international frameworks.
“Cooling Matters will tell the story of how our wellbeing depends upon cooling and how cooling technology choices can safeguard the well-being of future generations. We encourage the whole the refrigeration and air-conditioning industry to join us in celebrating World Refrigeration Day 2022,” said Gill.
