New Year’s Resolutions from Global Association Leaders--IIR
2018/01/21
Didier Coulomb, director general of International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR)
 
The IIR is the only independent intergovernmental organization with the mission of providing information on all refrigeration technologies and uses, including air conditioning, heat pumps, and cryogenics.
 
The challenges of refrigeration are health, particularly regarding the preservation of food and health products, systems’ energy efficiency, and the reduction of refrigerant emissions that destroy the stratospheric ozone layer and/or are potent greenhouse gases. All IIR activities such as conferences, publications, working groups, international projects, etc., are focused on these is - sues. Environmental issues were at the top of the agenda in 2017 due to the application of the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol about the phase down of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). For instance, the IIR published its 25th Informatory Note (IN) ‘The impact of the refrigeration sector on climate change’ in 2017, and disseminated the key findings of this IN during United Nations events.
