Recovery from the outbreak in focus

The COVID-19 crisis is impacting the European Commission Work Programme for 2020. The draft Recovery Strategy will focus initiatives that will contribute to overcoming the crisis. This draft would integrate aspects of the Green Deal, digitisation and the initial lessons learned from the crisis.

Eurovent and REHVA call on all relevant authorities in the EU and globally to recognise the manufacturing, distribution, installation, maintenance and repair of HVACR equipment as essential business activities and therefore exempt them from COVID-19 shutdown orders and travel restrictions. HVACR equipment supports critical infrastructure in the healthcare, food cold chain, data centre and building sectors notably. Prolonged shutdown of HVACR manufacturing activities might have severe consequences during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
