World Refrigeration Day 2021

The annual World Refrigeration Day aims to raise awareness among the wider public about the importance of refrigeration technologies in everyday life.

With increasing global stakes at hand, over the past years refrigeration has come to take a leading role at the heart of international affairs.


As the only independent intergovernmental organisation in the field of refrigeration, the IIR joins associations and companies worldwide to support the initiative of an official World Refrigeration Day on June 26 every year.
