AHRI and UNEP agree Global Program for refrigerant supply chain networks


Hi David, yes you are right, perhaps I would have been better to say that our industry shouldn't waste its valuable resources on pointless duplication. That is what I meant. It appears to me at least that there is a lot of effort by the different bodies having to justify themselves, and creating endless new spin to promote their activities. I am not against promoting this industry and the good that it is doing but I find the endless thirst for funding for funding sake distasteful. As you may have noticed, certain aspect of this industry get straight up my nose in truth with its hippocracy. It is wishful thinking, but some sort of global industry alliance might just work. One that doesn't give power to one sole institution. A network of industry bodies with a common goal. What I wouldn't like to see is the creation of yet another monster that becomes that eventually has the sole aim of feeding itself. We could end up with a FIFA, and that would put us in an even worse situation than now. As for using FETA as a model, no, I don't think so. The more I hear about FETA the less clear I become as to its purpose and the more certain that it is pointless. But, that may just be my ignorance so lets leave that subject alone because there are many wiser people than me in this industry that see the value in it.
