The HVAC&R industry took a substantial step on its progress towards a low-emissions future recently, as it established a Steering Council and elected a Chair to oversee PRIME.
PRIME is an initiative developed by a coalition of stakeholders from within the Australian heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) industry. Key stakeholders are united in developing low-emission solutions for the essential HVAC&R services we all depend upon.
PRIME stands for the five pathways to transition to low-emission practices and technologies: Professionalism, Regulation, Information, Measurement, and Emission abatement.
The initiative has evolved from a series of cross-stakeholder industry summits and discussions on low-emission strategies for the sector.
Immediate actions include establishing a strong and independent online presence for PRIME, and an official launch at ARBS 2014.
