AHRI and UNEP agree Global Program for refrigerant supply chain networks


Interesting comment from you again Jason. We are the same here in Aus. Even though the industry is relatively small compared to Europe or the USA , there is still competition between the trade bodies and in fighting. You say that the industry doesn't have the resources for endless duplication, well unfortunately it does have as it keeps on demonstrating. It seems that there is endless funding available to different factions to keep on justifying themselves. They all have supporters and vested interests, What you should have said is that the industry shouldn't waste the valuable resources. Because that is exactly what it is doing. I am as guilty of this as anyone. I belong to two trade bodies and they both do more or less the same with some slight tweaks and focus. The money, my money, would be better put to use if there were only one body. It could do a lot more. The global RAC industry needs to bring all the parties together to form a global RAC alliance. Sure they can keep their own identities but a platform whereby they can all speak together and co-ordinate efforts can only improve things. This shouldn't be headed by any one body, but could be chaired by different heads in rotation, a bit like the EU is run I hear. I worry though that if you form a completely separate body, it will just suck up more resources and create a pointless level of bureaucracy. But a global alliance might just work. Perhaps a global version of FETA but for teh RAC industry. What do you think?
