Refrigeration Experts Learn to be More Environmentally Friendly
Regional air-conditioning and refrigeration experts are being urged to conduct their work in a more environmentally friendly manner. This call was made at a two day Regional Technical Meeting on Refrigeration.
The United Nations Environment, Policy and Enforcement officer said the meeting will enable participants to develop ideas on how to transform the air conditioning and refrigeration sector. She pointed out that the technicians can exchange ideas on the way forward to a greener environment.
Agriculture Minister, Robert Persaud during his address told participants that the world is now feeling the pressures of nature. He noted that this is a result of neglect by policy leaders on issues and actions that contribute positively to climate change.
At the end of the meeting it is expected that recommendations will be made for the strengthening and sustaining of the refrigeration associations at the national and regional level.
Participants included technicians from Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Grenada, Bahamas, Suriname, Antigua and the CARICOM Secretariat.
