The Cooling Industry Awards have been running for 17 years and in that time they have won widespread respect amongst the refrigeration and air conditioning industry and importantly their customers. We bring around 50 experts together from across the supply chain for our distinctive face-to-face judging round, where the entrants get to pitch their entry directly to the judges. This way, entrants know that they are giving their best shot – it is not judged on the basis of who writes the best entry form – and judges can ask questions too. This year, we hope to return to doing this at our offices, but if not, we will hold the sessions over Zoom.
The Cooling Awards were founded to highlight the environmental progress of the industry and this is still a key element of all entries, but we have evolved the categories to enable all forms of best practice and achievement to be recognised.
This year we have new categories for Covid response and for individual achievement – there is something for everyone to enter!
