Call to Action for World Refrigeration Day 2020

In coordination with many supporting associations and companies worldwide, the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) is launching a Call to Action for World Refrigeration Day 2020.

Inaugurated in 2019, the second World Refrigeration Day is set to take place on June 26 this year.

In support of this special day, and with the aim of raising awareness and boosting accessibility of the refrigeration sector from the grassroots up on an international level, the IIR is calling to all stakeholders to actively help bring the refrigeration sector to the public eye by organising initiatives in their national markets.


Following the success of the first edition, and in line with the actions of the IIR, ASHRAE, EPEE and UN Environment are joining the IIR to organise a multilateral campaign under the theme “Cold Chain 4 Life”.


Call to action


As the only independent, intergovernmental organisation in the field of refrigeration, the IIR will create and promote a directory of all the different activities that will be organised worldwide in support of this day, with our partners.


Send your proposals to the IIR, preferably by June 1, to with the subject “Call to Action: World Refrigeration Day”.

Proposals should include a brief description of the activity, location, time of the event and contact information.
