Refrigeration, air-conditioning, and Heat-pumps (RACHP) are crucial for our health, nutrition, comfort, and well-being. It is one of the sectors that crosscuts many of the UN sustainable development goals and can contribute significantly to safeguard the environment, advance welfare of humanity and support the growth of employment and economics worldwide.
Women engagement in this sector is either under-represented or unrecognised around the globe despite the high potential that can be unleashed by encouraging women to pursue education and job opportunities in RACHP.
The International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR) and the OzonAction of UN Environment Programme (UNEP), in cooperation with several partners, are undertaking a survey to better understand the background, motivation, challenges, and opportunities faced by women working in the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat pumps sector.
Are you a woman working in the Refrigeration, Air-Conditioning and Heat Pumps sector? We would like to understand the motivation, challenges and opportunities faced by women working in the sector. Share your experience by completing this joint IIR-UNEP survey by January 31, 2022.
