What should we do next to help users to achieve their net zero ambitions?  Join the IOR annual conference on the 1st of December and find out what the needs of equipment users are, what other organisations are achieving and how we can learn from this. 

The conference will build on themes that the Institute of Refrigeration has been developing for the past three years under the Beyond Refrigeration banner, about how the cooling sector is changing to address low carbon and net zero targets. 

The conference agenda is being driven by end users. The programme will cover policy, innovation, and technical achievements,  Key national and international organisations will provide overviews of initiatives that are shaping the future of cooling and heating.
