Today is officially the Coolest Day of the Year.
That's right June 26, 2019 is the inaugural World Refrigeration Day (WRD) and everyone is invited to celebrate.
World Refrigeration Day has worldwide support from industry groups, end users, standard bodies and the UN Environment Program (UNEP).
It isn't just a celebration, WRD is designed to raise awareness of the significant role of refrigeration and air conditioning in modern life.
The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) launched a Call to Action for World Refrigeration Day with trade groups and professional bodies organising events to commemorate the big day.
Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) CEO, Stephen Yurek, said refrigeration is an important component of a safe and healthy society.
“From keeping medicines and food supplies safe to enabling a ready supply of fresh food choices regardless of geography, refrigeration is an often unheralded and yet vital technology for the modern world,” he said.
