World Refrigeration Day #WRD21 remains a key date in the diary for Howden. Every year we are proud to sponsor an event that celebrates the people and technologies responsible for creating and maintaining the world we live in, a world dependent upon temperature-controlled environments. The event is supported globally by industry, professional groups, scientific and engineering associations, as well as by governments and individuals.
The industrial refrigeration market is a $17B market, which is growing at 6.2% CAGR. This is thanks to the market drivers such as GDP growth in emerging countries, rising global consumption of processed food, and government initiatives to support cold chain infrastructure. In order to meet the global demand for refrigeration, the #WRD21 campaign will focus on raising the profile of the industry to attract more people into the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pumps industry. As the global demand for industrial refrigeration increases, we believe it is our responsibility to share the stories of our Cooling Champions who promote Cool Careers for a Better World.
