Celebrate World Refrigeration Day with the IOR on 26th June


25 June 2020

World Refrigeration Day is soon upon us and there are many ways to mark this special day for our industry.

The IOR will be hosting a series of debates based around the recent launch of "Beyond Refrigeration - the challenge to achieve net zero heating and cooling for the UK". Join us here for live debates on the future role of refrigeration, air conditioning, and heat pumps. The World Refrigeration Day Secretariat, ASHRAE, European Partnership for Energy and Environment (EPEE), International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), UNEP OzonAction, and Global Food Cold Chain Council (GFCCC) will be hosting an international webinar highlighting the vital role of the Cold Chain in food safety. World Refrigeration Day is being celebrated all over the world and the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) has a list showcasing events on all continents.

Nominate your #rachpheroes

The RACHP sector has provided vital services over the past few weeks and the IOR is keen to celebrate all of our industry's heroes who have gone the extra mile as part of their work or in the community. Join our social media campaign on 26th June and nominate your RACHP Hero (es) on Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #rachpheroes and #wrefd20.
