European industry sets global benchmarks in terms of energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and safety

Manufacturers within the Eurovent network set global benchmarks when it comes to producing high-qualitative, innovative, energy-efficient and sustainable technologies. They think ‘Beyond HVACR’, acknowledging the term’s various components by approaching them from a wider application perspective. Our manufacturers are united in advocating a holistic approach that integrates health, life and work quality as well as safety aspects.

A key activity of our association is to represent our industry’s achievements while bringing our knowledge across to emerging markets around the globe. When doing this, we closely cooperate with local partners, acknowledge and respect regional differences.

Founding member of ICARHMA

Eurovent is a globally respected and recognised association. It is a founding member of ICARHMA (the International Council of Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration, and Heating Manufacturers Associations) and represents European industry ideals in the latter. For our members, this offers a unique opportunity to exchange views with sector associations from Australia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Latin and North America. These associations represent almost a 100 billion USD of global industry. ICARHMA has been actively involved in supporting its member associations on ongoing policies and various other global issues related to the ‘HVACR’ industry including energy efficiency and environmental stewardship.

Within ICARHMA, Eurovent takes a proactive stance on global issues, advocating a level playing field in the discussions surrounding the phaseout of refrigerants while highlighting the importance of sustainable refrigeration as well as intelligent ventilation and air quality technologies. In 2014, Eurovent had the honour of hosting the ICARHMA Annual Meeting in Berlin (Germany) during its Eurovent Summit.
