“ASHRAE is an important decision-making association and constitution on behalf of the World HVAC-R sector. As the Turkish HVAC-R Sector, we are glad and proud to be a part of this initiative and to be the decision-maker for the development and growth of the World HVAC-R sector in all aspects. It is also a pleasure for us that ASHRAE, with its activities and vision in Turkey, has created a value chain that includes all stakeholders, from exporting companies to sector professionals, from academics to non-governmental organizations in the sector. The value added to the structural and intellectual vision of the HVAC-R Sector by the speakers who shared their opinions on the reduction of carbon footprint, climate crisis, food and energy security, health, and trained human resources at the meetings was indisputably important for all of us. In addition, the training given within the scope of RALCRC was quite beneficial for our sector representatives.
As ISIB, as the main sponsor of the conference, we brought a unique business network to İstanbul for the exporters of the sector. In order to develop our sector and increase its exports, I and our Members of the Board of Directors exchanged information with our foreign counterparts and shared the information they need as the sector.”
