Eurovent stands by its principles

Eurovent-principlesBELGIUM: Eurovent, the body representing HVACR manufacturers associations from the EMEA region, has produced a Statement of Principles.

Sub-titled Joint views on an industry that thinks beyond HVACR, Eurovent says the document will act as a basis for its decision making. It incorporates wider industry perspectives, statements on key policy issues, and visions that help to ensure a level-playing field.

The 34-page document includes agreed key statements on a wide range of topics including: the technological scope of the European industry, the core issues it is facing (such as indoor air quality, digitisation, food safety, and energy efficiency), major policy areas (such as ecodesign, energy labelling, and F-gases), as well as internationalisation aspects (such as a jointly agreed support on advancing and promoting EN and ISO standards).

“The publication of the Eurovent Statement of Principles constitutes yet another milestone in the further development of our association and in bringing the European industry and their leading sector associations closer together,” said Eurovent president Alex Rasmussen. “It follows our key principle of thinking Beyond HVACR by incorporating visions on future issues and our European industry values in general.”

Eurovent is Europe’s industry association for indoor climate (hvac), process cooling, and food cold chain technologies.
