EPEE places great importance on forging relationships with other trade associations and organisations with whom we have common cause.
At global level, we are proud to be part of ICARHMA (The International Council of Air-Conditioning, Refrigeration, and Heating Manufacturers Associations), a unique membership organization comprised of national and regional trade associations that represent a significant share of the HVACR market across the globe.
In Europe we are active members of a number of coalitions including the Coalition for Energy Savings, and the Energy Efficiency Industrial Forum (EEIF), and are also very active participants in a number of Joint industry expert groups (JIEGs) concerning various Ecodesign lots.
In addition, we aim to strengthen our existing relationships with national associations and stakeholders across the EU. In the recent past we have held events in Poland, Italy, and Spain, often in conjunction with the local associations, with the objective of communicating the latest EU rules concerning our sector and ensuring local companies have all the information they require to comply with the legislation.
We also organise similar events outside Europe, including China, Japan, and the US, amongst many others, to ensure that our international partners are aware of the latest EU developments and that local industry can comply with the EU requirements.
