Happy New Year 2022!
Best wishes from the IIR.
The year 2021 was marked by the launch of several projects to implement low environmental impact cold chains and refrigeration equipment in developing countries. It was also a year of projects aimed at defining a national or regional strategy to achieve carbon neutrality by mid-century, with the precious help of our partners: the World Bank, the United Nations Environment Programme, the European Commission, Norway, etc.
This work will continue in 2022: mitigating climate change and adapting to it require the refrigeration sector to evolve rapidly in the context of sustainable development worldwide. Countries are increasingly aware of this.
I wish you all the best to succeed in taking advantage of these tremendous development opportunities and of course, I wish you and your loved ones very good health despite the current pandemic.
